No Isaac Hayes, no Commotions

Strange as it may seem today to write this, I believe it is true. I'm really not sure what I would have become if I didn't hear Isaac Hayes in my late teens - something else, for sure. I was obsessed with Hot Buttered Soul for many years and the first song of mine ever played on the radio - The Power of Love - was titled from a line in Ike's rap in By the time I get to Phoenix. Hayes was a bona fide genius in my book and if you don't get shivers from the guitar riff that starts Walk On By, well, you probably don't like Hank Williams either.
