Lee Moses !
Who’s ready for the great Lee Moses !
I can’t hear you in the back !
Ok, Lee Moses (as we like them here, a bit sadly I must say) is a true lost figure in the history of R&B !
He was born in 1941, in Atlanta, GA, and he formed his first band, the Showstoppers, in the 1950s, and the group was an extremely big draw in the Atlanta area. He met New York producer and scene hustler Johnny Brauntly around 1965 and began working as a session guitarist for him (along with another session player, some left-handed guitarist named Jimi Hendrix, don't know if you've heard about him) in the Big Apple.
Moses cut three singles for Musicor Records in 1967, followed by a couple more for Dynamo Records and a nine-track solo LP in 1971 for Maple Records entitled Time and Place, which saw him backed by his own band, now called the Disciples, and various members of the Ohio Players.
He returned to Atlanta in the 70’s and the city remained his home base for the rest of his life. He gigged locally there but apparently did not record again.
He died in Atlanta in 1997.
Frankly, Lee Moses is pretty hard to top for intensity and soulfulness !
