100 Records That Shook The World, #41

Theme From "Shaft"

Isaac Hayes

For the second time the deep-voiced singer-songwriter who was Stax' saving grace after they lost their entire back catalogue to Atlantic Records in 1968 makes the list. He'd saved their butt in '68 with Hot Buttered Soul in which he redefined soul music and singlehandedly invented the slow jam; and now he was doing it again in 1971 with the defining moment in blaxploitation soundtracks. No further discussion necessary - just crank the speakers up and enjoy.
