WATCH: Lee Fields & The Expressions, “Wish You Were Here” (FILTER Premiere)

Blues artist Lee Fields and the Expressions spent a day on the roof of the Park Sheldon in downtown Detroit recently. Twelve stories above the city, the soul group performed their song "Wish You Were Here" from their album Faithful Man (Truth & Soul Records).

The video is a high contrast to modern day videos, with no added effects, black and white image, everything is stripped down to the core of the music with heart-wrenchingly soulful vocals, lyrics and simple guitar and horns adding incredible depth to the already-inspiring  performance. So get back to the root of all that is good in music and enjoy the huge contribution the soul veteran is still making 43 years into his career. You can check out the rest of the album here.

You can also see a slew of behind the scenes photos and other info on the special session right here.
