Lee Moses was a huge talent and if he’d had the big hit album he richly deserved, „Time And Place” would’ve been it. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Moses cut his teeth in the clubs of Atlanta, the Motown of the South, where he frequently performed alongside his contemporary Gladys Knight (who reportedly wanted him for the Pips, but couldn’t pin him down). It was, however, in New York in the ‘60s that Moses made his greatest bid to find the solo fame he desired. Moses began working there as a session player, even playing frequently with a prfame Jimi Hendrix, but his close relationship with producer and Atlanta native Johnny Brantley eventually saw him getting his own break via a series of 45s in 1967 – most notably with covers of Joe Simon’s “My Adorable One”, The Four Tops’ “Reach Out, I’ll Be There” and The Beatles’ “Day Tripper”. It was 1971 before Moses’ dream of being at stage front was realized, when he released his Brantley-produced LP „Time And Place” for Maple Records. Recorded with a band including members of The Ohio Players and Moses’ own backing group The Deciples, it was, nonetheless, Moses himself whose star quality shone through, via his scratchy guitar riffs, his throat-ripping vocals and the stirring mood that permeates the LP’s heady mix of funk, soul and R ‚n‘ B. The LP did no business, and Moses’ dream quickly crumbled. Though details on his life are scarce, it’s believed he fled New York disenchanted with the music industry, feeling he’d been doublcrossed by Brantley both in credit and remuneration for the countless records he’d played on. Back in Atlanta, Moses returned to playing the clubs, married twice, and fell into depression and drug dependency. He died in 1997 at the age of 56. „Time And Place” soon became a much-sought-after item for collectors, and its cult has continued to grow over the years. Now it finally gets an official rrelease on deluxe vinyl. All recordings got newly remastered. This is the very limited edition of 300 red and gold split color copies housed in an expanded gatefold Stoughton tip-on jacket including new liner notes by Sarah Sweeney and interviews with Moses’ sister and his closest collaborator, the singer and guitarist Hermon Hitson. Through them, Moses becomes a little – but just a little – less of an enigma.

Eddie Roberts is hands down one of the UKs finest guitarists who's risen to fame through the wonderful and longstanding New Mastersounds. Now a US resident, the UK lost Eddie's pressence here a number of years ago as NMS gained an ever growing and passionate following stateside. Touring coast to coast relentlessly, the band enjoys a cult following and large crowds at prestigious venues like The Filmore in San Fransisco. Through these tours, Eddie has embedded himself into the US 'Jam Scene', playing and recording with a multitude of musicians from many well known and underground bands like Pimps Of Joytime, Orgone, Soulive and many more. Obviously with the talent on offer, things are going to stick. So when the phenomenally good drummer Alan Evans stepped in for NMS's Simon Allen one time, a musical union was formed with a shared love of a particular sound and vibe and Matador! Soul Sounds was born.The A side 'Get Ready' is very much a statement of intent, they are saying 'this is how it's gonna go down', and boy do they throw it down. A relentlessly funky soul jazz groove that borders jazz rock, swirling organ, heavy heavy heavy drums, driving bass and Eddie's syncopated wah wah driven guitar work all cramming huge amounts of energy into a perfect 2 minutes and 55 seconds peak time 7". It kinda remind me a little of the killer early Brand New Heavies joint, 'Snake Hips', where funk meets rock meets soul, and naturally there's some NMS flavour in there too. The flip 'Mr Handsome' is channeling the vibes of The Meters, a much more bluesy (and funky) jam led wonderfully by the organ licks of Chris Spies and containing a solid Bernard Purdie-esque open drum break from Alan, oustanding musicianship from all concerned.The band makes their official world debut at Live For Live Music’s Brooklyn Comes Alive this Autumn. This debut single is due out on the same day via all streaming services, and of course what matters to us, a limited edition A side/B side 7-inch pressing!
