Isaac Hayes

A couple of days ago a friend gave me a copy of ‘Groove-A-Thon’… not his best, but he looked great on the sleeve and today it made me want to dig out my copy of ‘Hot Buttered Soul’, open up some whisky and relax. Then I turned on the news…

Isaac Hayes was one of the guys who turned me on to soul/funk, specifically with his Shaft soundtrack, and when I first listened to ‘Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic’ and heard the piano riff that Public Enemy sampled for ‘Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos’ it was like finding the holy grail.
