Notes

Auto-coupled:
Side 1 (A) and 4 (D) are found on record one.
Side 2 (B) and 3 (C) are found on record two.

Original sleeve folds out into a cross-shaped poster of Isaac Hayes. Original copies came with a custom single hard paper inner sleeve that had the image Isaac Hayes head on the front and the credits on the back (same as found on the cross shaped fold out cover). This was provided to buyers because the label figured many would unfold and hang the cover as a poster. Only one custom inner sleeve was provided to place both LPs inside in case this was done. Some copies also came with a 4X6 inch color foldout advertising and exclusive Ebony Magazine subscription offer to members of the Isaac Hayes Movement.

Recorded at Stax Records with the Dolby System

    This is the album that my Mom just drove into the ground. When I grew up though, I started to understand why. Just like his other albums, he has mostly dreamy slow cutz on here, he has just more of them belonging here. Ike's version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" and " (They Long To Be) Close To You" are just terrific, while "Good Love" is straight up funky! I don't know why, but "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" makes me laugh everytime I hear it. Maybe because he sounds super-serious about that. Another classic from the man in chains!!!!!
