Lee Moses – How Much Longer Must I Wait (Singles and Rarities ’65-’72)

Light In The Attic continue to push the envelope once again with deep releases, preserving not just the music, but history of the music and musicians that made this wonderful noise. Following their reissue of the Lee Moses classic Lp Time and Place, they now delve deep into the man’s music before that record on the compilation How Much Longer Must I Wait? Singles & Rarities 1965-1972. These tracks were recorded with Atlanta producer Johnny Brantley as Moses tried to breakon through to the other side of the music business as a star and features non-album singles B-Sides, and three never released tracks as well. Sides include “Bad Girl Pt. 1”, “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, “Day Tripper”, and fourteen other heat rocks.

If you were introduced to Moses via 45s like “Time and Place”, you’ll be delighted at the amount of quality material that’s housed on on record. The project comes out on Light In The Attic’s Future Days imprint, which gives a nod to records that were born ahead of their time. This man’s records definitely were. Although he’s a bit of a mystery, it’s great to be able to get a hold of these early recordings, as they are Southern soul music at its finest. It’s available on May 24th on exclusive color vinyl via Colemine and Plaid Room Records (other retailers will have an exclusive color as well) and on CD via LITA. This for sure is a huge project for soul lovers, fans of Lee Moses, and anyone who Moses has touched with his great music. Check out the track list below:
