Add to this the fact that Black Moses was released just a week or so after Shaft had topped the album charts… Hayes was in danger of overload. It has been cited as one of the greatest album covers ever. Shaw dressed Hayes in robes and went for Moses-lookalike overkill when the photograph was shot.

For some, Hayes really was Moses! All this is all well and good, but what about the music? On any other album this would be a standout song; here it is less prominent, but no less excellent.

The cover shows him shirtless in a pool blowing a kiss to the camera while surrounded by a bevy of fruit-draped beauties.

That (They Long To Be) Close To You - Isaac Hayes - Black Moses (Vinyl, likewise, is important: It may be the most interesting aspect of this album, which reveals Hayes' weaknesses just as surely as Black Moses reveals his considerable strengths.

It begins with three full minutes of barely intelligible chatter, as Hayes and friends chat up a woman in the studio. By the time the clamor bleeds into the title track, you may have already tuned it out. Fortunately, "Disco Freak" saves it by immediately establishing an elastic groove complete with gasping guitar licks, throbbing basslines, and a bridge that goes "Juicy Fruit sure is cute in her sexy jumpsuit.

This is Hayes in full disco mode, as the title makes clear, yet he never sounds quite as comfortable here as he does with the expansive hybrid soul covers of Black Moses.

Hayes, who had written many of Stax's biggest hits, penned all of these songs himself, but here the Bacharach-David influence becomes clear-- and clearly curbs his audacity. The choruses of "The Storm Is Over" and Album) of the Night" sound too smoothly polished to be very uplifting or seductive the latter is particularly (They Long To Be) Close To You - Isaac Hayes - Black Moses (Vinyland upbeat numbers like "Music to Make Love By" and "Thank You Love" slip too easily from horny funk into a sort of lite jazz, without the urgency or drama of his best work.
