– “If loving you is a Crime” by Lee Moses
from the movie “A Teacher” (bad movie, 2/10)
Lee Moses (13 March 1941 – 1997) was an American R&B and soul singer and guitarist, whose recordings in the late 1960s, and his 1971 LP Time and Place, are highly regarded by fans of the deep soul genre. He had some intonations closed to Otis Redding’s voice added to a real funk rhythm and tremendous energy. This song deserved a better movie.
Another notable great song is “Bad Girl” used for the movie “BLOOD TIES” (2013), actually my favorite Lee Moses’ tittle:
Please also enjoy his amazing “Hey Joe” version:
That was one of the best soul voice ever in my opinion.
