Released in 1971, ‘Black Moses’ was Isaac Hayes’ fifth album to be released in a little over two years, and is arguably his crowning achievement. The multi-instrumental singer/songwriter and producer had been a central figure in the Memphis soul music revolution of the mid-'60s. Along with Booker T. & the MG's, Hayes wrote and performed on more Stax sides than any other single artist.
Black Moses was recorded between March and October 1971, in the middle of the period when Hayes recorded the Shaft soundtrack. Black Moses, like most of the music on Hayes’ first three solo albums, is made up of cover versions, among them Side One, Track Two, the monumental rendition of Burt Bacharachand Hal David’s “(They Long to Be) Close To You.” The song had been Carpenters’ first No. 1 record a year or so before, and, in typical Ike fashion, he takes it and turns it on its head.
