Editorial Reviews

The 1969 debut album with Stax from long-time house musician and writer. Produced quite a stir with its 4 extended pieces. It's still sweet.

MAN!!--MAN!!--MAN!!
The memories for me associated with this classic album! (-:
It brings back my childhood watching my parents and older cousins
"do their thing" at the house parties, card parties, BBQ's/Fish-Fries, etc.
that they would throw in my family back then when they were all young
and many who are gone now were still around.

Issac Hayes served notice to the musical world of 1969
that HIS MOMENT had indeed ARRIVED and he was so much more
than just being part of the great Stax Records songwriting/producing
team of Hayes & Porter, who had given the label it's core sound
during the mid 60's with classics performed by Sam & Dave, Otis Redding
and others. This was a MAJOR DEPARTURE from the standard STAX sound
and a glimpse into the bright & funky future of the 1970's and beyond!
I always say that Curtis Mayfield, Sly Stone, Issac Hayes, Stevie Wonder
and Marvin Gaye did more to establish that black music was so much more
sophisticated than it's simple gut-bucket beginnings than any other artists
of their generation. They were the forerunners for Barry White, P-Funk,
The Isley Brothers 70's T-Neck Years, and many others that came after them.

From the opening notes of Issac Hayes' classic sleek, seductive and
infinitely funky re-working of the Burt Bachrach/Hal David via Dionne Warwick
1964 pop classic "WALK ON BY", you just know that this is something very special!
The sweeping orchestration is epic!

...but, oh, how lovely it is to travel. Isaac Hayes went into the recording studio back in 1969 with his the Bar-Kays as his backing band and created something magical and timeless that is beyond comparison from anything else I've ever heard. With only four numbers present here, it'd be easy to second-guess picking this up, but if you do you are a sucker, because you just don't understand how strong and potent this album is. It's almost ridiculous how many rappers have sampled this material, and how many times they've done it at that, but none of 'em, NONE OF 'EM could amass the emotion and skill that Brother Ike amassed into these four incredible numbers. The opener 'Walk on By' is not to be messed with for nothin'. The intro is hypnotic and intoxicating, stretching on for over two minutes before Brother Ike's mournful and dour voice comes in to sing his frustration and sadness away. Is' a rough number if you lived through it, but it's good fa' the soul. What follows is jus' somethin' funky, fa'real, an' I'm'a try an' spell it all out fa' you. 'Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic' is down-and-dirty gut-bucket funktified soul. Rhodes electric piano, classic guitar riffs, and that repetitive piano that Public Enemy jus' loves to sample. Oh, what a classic piece 'a work. I'm surprised lotsa these reviews don't seem to think too highly of 'One Woman' 'cause I can't get enough of that number. It's sweeter and more easy-going than the other three, but it's no less strong. I first tooke heavy notice of it while I was stuck in traffic on the highway on my way to my girl's house an' I heard Brother Ike say "I fight my way through the five o'clock rush hour, as daylight slowly leaves the sky..." That stuff gave me chills, fa'real.Read more ›

Let me just start off by saying I was 3yrs old when this "Album" came out. And I remember that every one of my relatives had this album (including my mom and grandparents). Everyone would be partying and playing this album. (Ours is worn out....believe me).
You know how a song can trigger a memory? Well, I saw movie "Dead Presidents" (great soundtrack CD), and Issac's "Walk on By" is included in movie (where they count the money). All of a sudden, I remembered this cut! I heard it so many times in my childhood. So I had to see if HOT BUTTERED SOUL was released on CD.
Thank god it is! Honey, this is soul music at its finest. Issac Hayes does not get the credit he deserves in music history. Forget Dionne Warwick's version, Issac Hayes is the BEST version I've ever heard. The horns, the violins, the melody, the man is BAD! This has got to be the best musical introduction I have ever heard in my life!
Then you get to "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedelamystic"...I have NO IDEA what the hell this means, but I feel the smoke, the sweat, the sex, the incense, the energy of this cut. I tell you, they just don't make them like this anymore.
You want some soul, get HOT BUTTERED SOUL. Issac may be "Chef" on SOUTH PARK now, but he's a musician always. In heart and soul.

I remember groovin to this album back in 1996 and it was in my funk/soul discovery phase of my listening palette that included Curtis Mayfield, Parliament/Funkadelic, Sly & the Family Stone, Al Green and James Brown. This pivotal album is a classic and although there's only 4 numbers that make up this recording, its a delectable slice of funk and soul and the songs contained herein, reflect the talent and gift Issac possessed as a writer, arranger, singer and musician. Backed by the Bar Kays, whom were a trio of musicians that included drummer Willie Hall, bassist James Alexander and guitarist Michael Toles, they were originally the house band at Stax records and were chosen to be Otis Redding's touring band. Unfortunately, most of the original members perished in the plane crash that killed Redding en route to a show in Madison, WI. Surviving members, Ben Cauley(trumpet) and James Alexander(bass) rebuilt the group shortly after and this record reflects the rebirth of a great soul band.

Even though the record only offers 4 songs and of the 4, only one is an original composition; the production, recording and arrangements were of the highest caliber and not only did this record establish Hayes' artistry, it also put him into the limelight of a solo performer. Opening with a Burt Bacharach number, "Walk on By" is lavishly adorned with a full string and horn section as well as backing singers and the aforementioned, inimitable talents of the Bar Kays; the performance lasts a full 12 minutes leading into the funkiest number on the record, "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic" which features a great wah guitar melody accompaniment in tandem with Hayes' piano leading and the dynamite rhythm section of Alexander and Hall.
