Regarding the audio on this set, it's the old 1991 remaster, so while the "digitally remastered" applied to this release is technically correct, it's just marketing BS applied to an 18-year-old mastering job. Very unkewl.

So, if you already own the older 2CD jewel-cased set, all you're getting here is an expanded booklet and a flimsy replication of the original, foldout LP cover. Care needs to be exercised when attempting to remove the CD's from the thin-walled digipak: I suffered a tear to the package's spine while extracting one of the discs from a pocket.

The audio on the '05 Can You Dig It? set is slightly better, but, of course, many of the "Moses" tracks on that collection are the abbreviated versions.

There was also improved sound on the 1999 import, but that edition was a single-disc, hacked-to-death bastardization.

In addition, the 2008 Japan SHM-CD release was also the '91 master, and even though that was a mini-sleeve re-release, the Japanese have never replicated the original LP cover, which is supposed to be the principle behind mini-sleeve versions!

All of this is really frustrating; maybe someday, some label can forgo the opportunistic death-profiteering, and get the sound updated correctly with the complete version in the original package?

Hey, MFSL or Audio Fidelity, howzabout you guys? If either of you were to FINALLY do it right, it's not like it wouldn't sell: Japan has pressed two 5K mini-sleeve runs, and even the edited 1CD import sold through, so obviously the market is there!

This is a very close second (in my book) only to his
classic & iconic 1969 breakthrough "Hot Buttered Soul" in
the great Issac Hayes catalogue of 1969-1973 brilliant
soul/funk masterworks which were highly influential game-changers
in the scope and production of black music of that time.
Of course their influence goes beyond just black music or
the times in which they were produced.
Issac Hayes was pure genius at taking songs which were popular
in their day by other artists and totally transforming them into
something that was uniquely his own creation!
Just like "Hot Buttered Soul", this amazing 2-disc set abounds
with epic & lush orchestration, raw & flat-footed funky rhythm
arrangements that will have you making the "funk face", bobbin'
your head and haunchin' your shoulders along to the groove!
Also, there is the deep sensuality & longing that Issac's music
was known for and he communicated so well through his silky
but resonant baritone with that southern drawl that drove the
black women of that time wild!--The black men of that time
admired him for what he represented.

Issac Hayes--from his "look" with that bald head,
the gold chains which symbolized the new post-civil rights
black man & woman breaking free of the chains that had once
bound their ancestors and "washing them gold" if you will,
with a new spirit of expansiveness, upward mobility, education,
pride, self-motivation, fully utilizing the freedoms &
opportunities which were then newly available to them!
That is what that generation of young blacks were about,
and he seemed to be the living & breathing embodiment of
that for them!

The 1st time i heard this album was on a 8-track.. My Mother had given me some 8-track albums because she didnt want them anymore and i just happened to pick up the Black Moses LP

My aunt had a 8-track player in her car so i listened and from the first notes i was sold.

Most Artist's are lucky to get 1 album to go #1 But by 1971, not long after releasing The Shaft Soundtrack(which was still on the charts) Isaac was at #1 on the R&B charts again with "Black Moses" 2 albums going #1 in the same year.

Every song on the album has hit potential where as some albums today have 1 or 2 songs that are hits and the rest are fillers.

Its hard to choose a favorite because Ike makes every song his own but if i had to choose id say

The Burt Bacharach/Hal David Classic "Close To You" to Jerry Butlers "Never Gonna Give You Up" ... from the Curtis Mayfield Written "A Mans Temtation" Originally a hit for Chicago Soul Singer Gene Chandler to Kris Kristofferson's Country Classic "For The Good Times" which became Country Soul In Isaac's Hands.

Then there is "Never Can Say Goodbye" which was a previously released single without an album home until The Black Moses LP came along. and the original "Good Love" writen by Ike and one of his trumpet players Mickey Gregory.

Long before Luther made his classic rendition of "Going In Circles" Originally a hit for "The Friends Of Distinction" Isaac took his shot at it and passed with flying colors.

This song shows a rare occurance of Isaac rising into his falsetto range with ease.

Although he had established himself as a deep throated baritone..quit as it was kept Ike had a peircing falsetto that was out of this world.
