Comment:

A mix put together after the recent death of Isaac Hayes that starts with that great first song from the Hot Buttered Soul album. This of course is the full length jam of the Burt Bach*rach song that Dionne Warwick made into a hit.
Lots more great songs here including George Benson sounding an awful lot like Stevie Wonder and the Earth, Wind & Fire backed Ramsey Lewis soul jazz jam. The mix closes with a trio of late 60s classic soul.

Looks like a wonderful se_nd off to Isaac by a great line up of soulful talent. I especially like the song by the Revere_nd Green.
