Lee Moses - "Bad Girl (Pt. 1 & 2)"

Time and Place by Atlanta guitarist and singer Lee Moses is a lost treasure of rhythm and blues—a holy grail of a soul record that's developed a dedicated and cult-like following over the past 30-plus years. Originally released in 1971 on Maple Records and re-issued in 2007 by Castle Music UK—though now sadly out of print again—the record contains Moses's interpretations of various classic cuts of the era ("Day Tripper," "Hey Joe," "Reach Out I'll Be There") along with his own hard-nosed funk sound, as evidenced by the original title-track and unequaled two-part "Bad Girl." While Moses's fluent and sharp guitar play deserves praise, it's his savage aching voice—a mess of emotions, nearly bursting apart at the seems of sanity—that truly captivates. (via)

  1. Discovered Lee Moses because of the soundtrack on the "Blood Ties" trailer and I'm completely blown away by it!
