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
