Reception[edit]

Amazon said "Respected as one of Australia's iconic musicians, Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable sound - not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul. 'Mossy' is now allowing his guitar work to take a back seat while he concentrates on singing - which is the focus of his album that features fresh takes on classic soul songs from the likes of Sam Cooke, Al Green, Otis Redding and Levi Stubbs. When audiences hear the power and excitement on Soul on West 53rd, it will reinforce what Ian Moss has to offer as a vocalist of repute". [2]
