Presenting Isaac Hayes stands in stark contract to such subsequent works as Hot Buttered Soul and Shaft, lavishly orchestrated albums that revolutionized African-American popular music. This, the Tennessee soul man’s debut album, finds him singing and playing piano, accompanied only by bassist Duck Dunn and drummer Al Jackson, Jr., at an impromptu session followed a company party. It’s the type of intimate, champagne-sipping affair you'd expect if Hayes came over to your house, placed a candelabrum atop the grand piano, and proceeded to serenade you and your lover for nearly an hour. Included is a previously unissued, nineteen-minute version of the Hayes song “Precious, Precious.”

with Donald "Duck" Dunn, Al Jackson, Jr.
