JOHNSON, Chuck. Black Moses of Soul.
Aquarius Films, 1973. Original film poster. Filmed during the 1973 tour of the legendary Isaac Hayes, this concert film finds the Black Moses of Soul at the top of his game, having earlier won an Oscar for the Theme from Shaft , and laying down silky, love-making grooves with such albums as Hot Buttered Soul . By the time Hayes released his album The Movement – which this tour was in support of – he was one of the most popular performers in music (not to mention one of the baddest). To the film’s credit, despite being poorly shot and terribly lit, it still manages to capture the magnitude of Hayes’ charisma. As he struts the stage decked out in his gold, chain-link shirt, it’s more than obvious that Hayes is indeed The Man. This is a very good example, creased where folded, 2″ closed tear to top edge and left side. Measures approx. 41″ by 27″
