A double album Black Moses saw Hayes once again work with the superb Bar Keys and mix original compositions with numerous cover versions, all given his distinctive interpretation . Which the listener can immediately judge for themselves as the first two tracks are covers of Clifton Davis,s "Never Can Say Goodbye " and "(They Long To Be ) Close To You " which of course was made famous by The Carpenters. And as is usual with Hayes the arrangements are stretched out though with a relaxed languid air , never sounding bloated or indulgent. With "Close To You " the re-working is even more radical with a an extended prologue section.
"Nothing Takes The Place Of You " ,another cover is arguably a weak point but the two Curtis Mayfield covers, "Mans Temptation " and "Need To Belong To Someone " are great and Clay Hammonds "Part Time Love " is especially fine with some juicy female harmonies and funky guitar work. From Charles "Skipp " Pitts. "Going In Circles" is a bit overdone though the extended hymn like coda is lovely .Read more ›
However, it's rather a shame that the "proper" running order has STILL not been restored. The original vinyl release backed side one with side four and side two with side three. This same sequence has still been used for the two compact discs, meaning it is not being listened to in its "logical" order. Listeners can switch to disc two, after "Man's Temptation", should they wish to experience this utterly magnificent album sequentially. Unimportant? I am not so sure. The "Part Time Love" though "Going In Circles" segment forms the most thrilling of finales to this truly great album.
The tracks, if played in their intended sequence, is:
1. Never Can Say Goodbye
2. (They Long To Be) Close To You
3. Nothing Takes the Place of You
4. Man's Temptation
5. Never Gonna Give You Up
6. Medley: Ike's Rap II / Help Me Love
7. Need to Belong to Someone
8. Good Love
9. Medley: Ike's Rap III / Your Love is So Doggone Good
10. For The Good Times
11. I'll Never Fall In Love Again
12. Part Time Love
13. Medley: Ike's Rap IV / A Brand New Me
14. Going In Circles

Music, brilliant for me, is catered for elsewhere here.
The sound is immaculate, having been re-mastered, to my ears, for cd and not for MP3 or PC etc. Read more
