Although this is Isaac Hayes' third long-player, he had long been a staple of the Memphis R&B scene — primarily within the Stax coterie — where his multiple talents included instrumentalist, arranger, and composer of some of the most beloved soul music of the '60s. Along with his primary collaborator, David Porter, Hayes was responsible for well over 200 sides — including the genre-defining "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby," "Soul Man," "B-A-B-Y," "Hold On, I'm Comin'," and "I Had a Dream."

With seven massive number one records trailing in his wake, Isaac Hayes donned his stylin', funky gold-chain link vest once again and capped 1973 with Joy, a set which might have proven the lucky-streak breaker – it missed the top spot by one place – but still waded into gold-record waters with ease. "Joy" itself, of course, was the album's crowning glory, a gargantuan 15-minute piece which essentially devoured side one of the album (the accompanying "I Love You That's All" is merely an afterthought).

Isaac was on a roll in the early 70's with his cinematic romantic funk/soul tales. Than around this this time BOOM!:I've Got So Much to Give,Barry White's debut album was unleashed on the world and all of a sudden Hayes started to seem like he was part of a movement rather than the sole purveyor of it. It was all for not as it turned out: Isaac himself was already so successful and he and Barry's style of orchestration and approch were so fundamentally different at the very bottom that both could easily exist in the same world together. In fact on this album Isaac is borrowing very heavily from Barry's cross pollination of his own sound. The psychedelic element,already being purged heavily from his sound during the Shaft period is completely gone here.

Sash does a great 1998 rendering of this early 70's classic taking up the tempo and adding new drum/percussion tracks. Most of the original elements of the song are left intact. There are two versions from Sash, one being a radio edit which has a different intro and the outro with vocals over the ending.

One of the key links between the old-school soul of the R&B revue shows of the '60s and today's rap movement, Isaac Hayes gave to soul music not only a very sophisticated kind of rapping but also some style pointers in the shaved head, gold chains and wrap around shades. His biggest successes were with the movie soundtrack to Shaft and with Hot Buttered Soul (available through Ace as CDSXD 021 and CDSXE 005, respectively). While 1978s Hotbed may not be in the same major league, it still finds Ike working out, in his own unique way, on such vehicles as Bill Withers Use Me and the Ten Commandments Of Love.

In 1986, Isaac Hayes signed with CBS Records and many hoped he would make a big comeback. Despite containing some great songs, superb production and strong and passionate vocals from Isaac this CD was very poorly promoted and it failed to get the radio airplay it deserved. Standout numbers featured include "If You Want My Lovin', Do Me Right", "It Never Rains In London", "Thank God For Love" and Isaac's crushingly soulful remake of "Hey Girl". "U-Turn" may well be one of Isaac Hayes' most obscure and underrated albums but it's well worth getting if you can find it.

By 1969, black artists were following rock's lead and recording extended epics. At the forefront of such experimentation was big bad Isaac Hayes, coauthor of countless Stax classics and an artist in his own right. On this, his second album, Hayes takes two MOR-pop benchmarks, Burt Bacharach's "Walk On By" and Jimmy Webb's "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," and spins them out into slow-building sermons lasting 12 and 18.5 minutes apiece. Heavily romantic, they predate by two years Barry White's symphonic adventures in the same style, revolutionizing soul music in the process. Meanwhile, on the album's third epic, the 10-minute "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic," Hayes and his backing band the Bar-Kays wind up sounding, bizarrely, like a black Crazy Horse.
