Isaac Hayes

In honor of the great Isaac Hayes, who 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 will probably best be remembered for Shaft, however, his long career went well beyond the 1971 soundtrack, with Hayes 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.
