Sash does a great 1998 rendering of this early 70's classic taking up the tempo and adding new drum/percussion tracks. Most of the original elements of the song are left intact. There are two versions from Sash, one being a radio edit which has a different intro and the outro with vocals over the ending.
One of the key links between the old-school soul of the R&B revue shows of the '60s and today's rap movement, Isaac Hayes gave to soul music not only a very sophisticated kind of rapping but also some style pointers in the shaved head, gold chains and wrap around shades. His biggest successes were with the movie soundtrack to Shaft and with Hot Buttered Soul (available through Ace as CDSXD 021 and CDSXE 005, respectively). While 1978s Hotbed may not be in the same major league, it still finds Ike working out, in his own unique way, on such vehicles as Bill Withers Use Me and the Ten Commandments Of Love.
Isaac Hayes - The Black Moses of Soul movie was released by the GoodTimes Entertainment studio. Along with his band, the movement, Isaac is taped during a live performance. Isaac Hayes - The Black Moses of Soul movie Songs include "Never Can Say Goodbye," "Light My Fire," "The Look of Love," "I Stand Accused," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and "I Don't Know What To Do with Myself."
In 1986, Isaac Hayes signed with CBS Records and many hoped he would make a big comeback. Despite containing some great songs, superb production and strong and passionate vocals from Isaac this CD was very poorly promoted and it failed to get the radio airplay it deserved. Standout numbers featured include "If You Want My Lovin', Do Me Right", "It Never Rains In London", "Thank God For Love" and Isaac's crushingly soulful remake of "Hey Girl". "U-Turn" may well be one of Isaac Hayes' most obscure and underrated albums but it's well worth getting if you can find it.
Stax proudly presents the reissue of Hayes’ 1976 disco album, Juicy Fruit (Disco Freak), originally released on Hayes’ ABC Records-distributed Hot Buttered Soul label and recorded at his own Memphis studio with many of his long-time band members. This is its first time on CD. Music historian Bill Dahl contributed liner notes to the reissue.
