In May 1968 the label Stax lost the rights to its entire back catalog after splitting with the distributor Atlantic Records — bought by Warner — and only a few months before its famous artist Otis Redding and four of the six members of the Bar-Kays disappeared in a plane crash… In a desperate act to save the activity, its director, Al Bell, bet on Isaac Hayes giving him a second chance after the commercial flop of his first studio album. A successful gamble which restored some colour to Stax as Hot Buttered Soul sold more than a million copies.
Recorded at the Ardent Studios in Memphis (Tennessee) and Tera Shirma Studios in Detroit (Michigan), Hot Buttered Soul is mainly an album of covers. Only the title Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic is co-credited to Isaac Hayes (and Alvertis Isbell). Isaac Hayes played Hammond organ and sang the vocals live while conducting the tracking band The Bar-Kays (reconstituted since the drama). The public discovered a modern music, very different from the standards of the time, which gave a new impulse to the soul. A major album of the genre remaining over time an indisputable reference of black American music. © Qobuz

Stax, Sounds Like The South...

Motown in the North. And Stax in the South. Two quite distinct conceptions of soul music. In the southern humidity of Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and a few others invented a unique groove imbibed with blues and above all gospel.

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

Stevie Wonder, Funking Up the ‘70s

Between 1972 and 1976, a young Stevie Wonder recorded five albums that would leave their mark on the history of Motown, as well as on the entire world of pop and soul music: A musical and technological nirvana that is still just as influential today.
