Isaac Hayes is best known for the theme from the movie `Shaft' with his big soulful voice, its wah-wah guitar sound and orchestral arrangement. It reached No. 1 in the charts and won Isaac Hayes an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The Shaft soundtrack won a Grammy Award for Best Original Score. This Best of Collection CD includes Isaac Hayes' Stax singles of the 1970's with covers of Bacharach and David classics `Walk on By' and `The Look of Love' all given the `Isaac Hayes' treatment with a winning combination of great voice, big orchestral sound, girl backing vocals and interesting arrangements. Whilst at Stax records in the 1960's Isaac Hayes was a session keyboard player, backing vocalist (including for Otis Redding) and songwriter (co-writing hits for Sam and Dave). His own music came to prominence with the solo album `Hot Buttered Soul' which received international recognition. He released several albums and movie soundtracks. Isaac Hayes was also an actor, playing the role of bounty hunter Truck Turner and was interested in the role as detective John Shaft before the part went to Richard Roundtree. Isaac Hayes' songs have a great vocal and demonstrate a range of romantic emotions through a fusion of soul, funk, jazz, R'n'B and easy listening.

By GOODBYE! TOP 500 REVIEWER on 29 Jun. 2014
Format: Audio CD
This collection of seven tracks doesn't really do justice to the talent of Hayes and bigger and better collections have been released since, but as an introduction to the man and his music, it is a good place to start.

The album opens with possibly the most easily recognised piece of theme music on the planet - 'Theme From Shaft' - dark, funky, soulful and moody.

We also have an 11 minute-plus version of 'Walk On By'. This song is so open to interpretation. Isaac's delivery is funky, a bit jazzy and meandering...but it works well.

'Do Your Thing' is fabulous, as is 'I Don't Want to be Right'.

I can't think of any other artist who fuses soul, funk and jazz so beautifully.

What a track to start the album, "The theme from Shaft"! Possibly one of the best known intros in R&B: no 70s night is complete without the this track being played. Isaac's cover of Burt Bacharach's "The look of Love", and the track made famous by great Dionne Warwick, "Walk on by", add to the albums fantastic composition. "The Look of love" is like warm honey trickling down your throat, a definite tune to warm any bedroom! If you have never listened to Isaac Hayes or the only song you know is the "Theme from Shaft" This is a must.

One of the best "best of" of Isaac Hayes, with the sog "Shaft" still heard on the radio or in advertisements
