The Academy Award Winning 1971 Soundtrack on 180g Double Vinyl! Can Ya Dig It?

As one of the many wonderful soundtracks to emerge during the early '70s, Shaft certainly deserves mention as not only one of the most lasting but also one of the most successful.  Isaac Hayes was undoubtedly one of the era's most accomplished soul artists, and with "Theme From Shaft", he delivered an anthem just as ambitious and revered as the film itself, a song that has only grown more treasured over the years, after having been an enormously popular hit at the time of its release.  Shaft still remains a powerful record: one of Hayes' pinnacle moments for sure.

Released in 1971, the Shaft soundtrack became a #1 selling album both in pop and r&b categories, remaining on the charts for a jaw-dropping 60 weeks. The "Theme From Shaft" was an immediate crossover phenomenon - #1 Pop single & #2 R&B single. The soundtrack continues to this day to influence popular and hip-hop music and serves as a sampler's paradise.

A primary reason for the enduring significance of the film Shaft is the film's score, composed by the legendary Isaac Hayes. He created music that sounded like nothing else of his day - making this album truly one of the most pivotal and influential soundtracks of all time.

Hayes received a Golden Globe for Best Original Score, Grammy's for Best Original Score and Instrumental Arrangement, and an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
