First time on CD! This US power trio's sole album was released on both sides of the Atlantic in 1969, but sank without a trace. Equally influenced by blues, soul and acid rock, it's an enjoyable mixture of snappy hard rock songs and the lengthy ''Love Is The Word'' suite, which occupied a whole side of the original LP. Featuring backing vocals from Northern Soul legend Brenda Holloway and production by former Merry-Go-Round guitarist Bill Rinehart, it's a must for fans of Bluesy psychedelic rock. Fallout. 2006.
A word of warning...

"If you buy this CD based on the 5-star reviews here, I'm pretty sure you WILL be disappointed. I'll give you Fields in a nutshell: if Cream had been significantly less talented and took a lot of quaaludes, they could have made this album. There's a very good reason why this recording is obscure: it deserves to be. These guys aren't even as good as Stained Glass. Save your money."

"YES! I've waited a long time for this to come out on CD. Heavy psych acid rock, grinding guitars, this is the stuff folks! I originally stumbled on them many years back in the cut out bin and was blown away by their style/content. No disappointments here, buy it, you'll love it!
PS...Don't be fooled by the "other" Fields LP with the bird on it, not hardly the same group."

"Fields was a late sixties So. Cal. power trio that cranked out some pretty good psychedically infused rock, as captured on this album. Their name was supposedly based on love-ins that were held in "Elysian Fields", a park area behind Dodger Stadium in L.A. I saw them live at The Rose Palace in Pasadena in the late sixties (every name band from the sixties played this forum at one time if they came to So. Cal.), and was disappointed that they didn't do their showmark tune of "Elysian Fields", because the lead guitarist's wah-wah pedal was broken. Great song. The five stars is based solely on side 1 of their LP (I haven't heard the CD and can therefore make no commentary on its sound quality or liner notes), as side 2 was a "suite" consisting of only one song that I recall as being spectacularly unimpressive. If you like The Hook,Aum,CWB,Blue Cheer,The Leaves and other proto-punk psych bands of the late sixties then you will get into Fields. I am frankly surprised that it is even out on CD, as the album was somewhat obscure even in the sixties."
