Isaac Hayes - 2003 - Instrumentals

The only thing better than Isaac Hayes' vocal tracks are those wicked funky instrumentals that he used on a lot of his best early 70s albums and soundtracks , most of the best of which are included in this excellent little set! The CD does what someone should have done a long time ago , collects all the best dope instrumentals from Ike's classic Stax albums, with a focus on laidback grooves and slow funk numbers, including those that have been sampled over the years. And sure, you might already own a few of these on the original albums, but hearing them together like this opens a whole new door to Ike's genius , one that makes us appreciate him even more, and feel like we've been lucky enough to find a crate full of studio tracks laid out in a completely different way.
