Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul

I featured the first track of this album on my Sample Appreciation, that track was used for Compton's Most Wanted's "Hood Took Me Under" and Biggie's "Warning". This is a bangin soul album, and is unique in that it doesn't have the radio oriented short singles. The shortest track on the album is 5:10, with the others ranging from 9 to 18 minutes. You've got Isaac Hayes' amazing singing over some great orchestration, really classic soul here.

The album deals with love and emotion, probably my favorite track is "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", which is almost half delivered in spoken phrase. It's the story of a man who's girl cheated on him way too many times and he wants to leave her.

Seriously peep this album, I know y'all are fans of rap and just hearing the little bits of samples is hot, but this is good fuckin music right here.

  1. "Walk on By" (Burt Bacharach, Hal David) – 12:03
  2. "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" (Isaac Hayes, Alvertis Isbell) – 9:38
  3. "One Woman" (Charles Chalmers/Sandra Rhodes) – 5:10
  4. "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" (Jimmy Webb) – 18:42
