  • A staff songwriter with the legendary Stax label, Isaac Hayes, with partner David Porter, composed material for many of the company's artists, including Sam And Dave, Carla Thomas and Johnnie Taylor. Frustrated with this backroom role, he began recording in his own right, and with Hot Buttered Soul, redefined the notion of soul music. Although the tracks were lengthy, there was no sense of self-indulgence, each one evolving over sensual rhythms and taut arrangements. Hayes' vocal anticipated the 'rap' genre of Barry White and Millie Jackson without slipping into self-parody, lending an air of sophistication to a highly influential collection.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The album was a model of free-form soul and protodisco arranging that made an ace producer-songwriter into a pop star..."

Rolling Stone (4/11/02, p.108) - Ranked #46 in Rolling Stone's "50 Coolest Records" - "...Along with perhaps the greatest album cover of all time, you get endless Memphis soul grooves, slow and deep..."

Paste (magazine) (p.61) - "One of the best and most grandiose albums ever recorded....It's the third cover, Jimmy Webb's 'By The Time I Get to Phoenix,' that blows minds with its 9-minute spoken intro and superlatively heraldic horns."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.91) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[G]enuinely revolutionary, signalling a way in the way soul music was consumed -- no longer as the three-minute 45, but in album form."
