Isaac Hayes, 1942-2008

In honor of the great Isaac Hayes whom unfortunitely passed away yesterday in his Tennesse home, here is an amazing Ron Hardy white-label edit of Hayes' 1975 classic funky dancefloor cut "I Can't Turn Around". Hayes, who will probably best be remembered for the Shaft soundtrack, however, throughout his long career Hayes' career went well beyond the 1971 soundtrack, releasing many amazing funk, soul, and even disco classics throughout the years. Some of my favorites that come to mind are "Zeke The Freak", "Don't Let Go", "I Can't Turn Around", and of course "Theme From 'Shaft'". Regardless of your favorite track, it's obvious that Isaac Hayes legacy, music, and influence will be forever lasting.
