Isaac Hayes - Shaft (2-LP 180g Vinyl)


A landmark album released by Isaac Hayes and the Bar-Kays at the height of their powers in 1971, Shaft not only resulted in an Oscar win for Hayes, but launched the wah-wah workout and #1 smash-hit, “Theme from Shaft” into cultural ubiquity. Its legacy transcends time as not only one of the most lasting and most successful Blaxploitation albums of all time, but one of the most essential, career-defining moments of Isaac Hayes’ accomplished career. This new vinyl reissue, complete with replica old-school style tip-on gatefold jacket, features audio remastered from the original analog tapes by leading engineer Dave Cooley and pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
