He has recorded one LP and several singles.
You find all of them on this CD.
Another unsung hero in the Southern Soul canon, Lee Moses cut just
one longplaying album and a few singles, but the unbridled mastery
of the man's voice and guitar chops has long made his album 'Time
and Place' a cult favorite to those in the know.
Building quite a name for himself as a session guitarist, Moses
churned out some appetizing, scorching Southern Soul sides on his
own for a variety of labels that all aptly demonstrated the man's
'Time and Place' kicks off with the title-track, a sizzling slice
of down home, Southern fried funk, showcasing Lee's tight guitar
riffs and his wonderful voice. Think of O.V. Wright with even more
grit, and you have Lee Moses. Great horns throughout, as well
"Got That Will" namechecks a host of superstars; Jimi Hendrix, Sly
Stone, Aretha Franklin, a funky tribute to Moses' heroes. Penned by
himself and Herman Hitson, Moses wails on how he too is going to
Next up is the most hauntingly beautiful track of the entire disc,
the ravaging, devastatingly intense "What You Don't Want Me to Be".
Lee's vocals are smothered in sheer despair and unimaginable
sadness. The spooky vibe is further enhanced by ghostly, gospelish
backup vocals. One of the greatest Southern Soul ballads ever
committed to vinyl.
Moses' penchant for hard driving funk grooves is further explored
on a thundering version of "California Dreaming" and especially on
the lurching, fatback, electrified "Hey Joe". Lee's guitar work is
simply brilliant here; down and dirty, greasy and raw. Southern
Soul fused with a huge dosis of back beat heavy funk. And boy that
wailin'... Soul personified.
Lee proves his talent as a songwriter once more with the divine,
sparsely orchestrated "Every Boy and Girl", featuring more of those
weeping female backing vocals.
Then there's the delicious mid-tempo beater "Free at Last". Moses'
gruffy pipes are set to another thick, rollicking funk groove while
the man guides himself on guitar, pluckin' some heavenly
Wah wah'd superfunk blasts through the speaker as Moses delves into
the highly syncopated "Would You Give Up Everything". Listen to him
roar on the verses here, this is Southern Soul at its rawest,
something that was becoming quite rare in the early '70s.
Closing the LP is a cover of Joe Simon's "My Adorable One", a tune
he had previously recorded as a single in the late '60s.
This is Funk and Soul at the crossroads. A ferociously raw album
brimming with Lee's tremendous, gutbucket vocals and his equally
funky guitar chops.
