One of the truly timeless albums in soul music history and the one that launched the career of Isaac Hayes, putting him firmly on the map as a musical force to be reckoned with and a source on musical inspiration for generations to come. This new vinyl reissue, complete with replica old-style tip-on jacket, features audio remastered from the original analog tapes by leading engineer Dave Cooley and pressed on 180-gram vinyl.

"Hot Buttered Soul" is exactly as Isaac Hayes named it: the lush arrangements featuring strings and horns were recorded at United Sound Studios in Detroit, home of Motown Records, and had been arranged by Johnny Allen, who had arranged music for The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, and The Supremes, and who would later do the arrangements on the soundtrack to Shaft, for which he won a Grammy. As an icon of soul, and from this album there is a direct line to Marvin Gaye’s masterful "What’s Going On" and on through to the kind of thing Barry White was doing a few years later. It made the Top 10 on the Billboard album chart and hit No.1 on both the R&B and Jazz charts, yet there are still many who have never stepped inside the Hayes House… Those that have know that those who haven’t are missing out. — (via UDiscover Music)
