These two compilations dutifully boil down Isaac Hayes' sometimes long-winded albums to their essential parts -- in other words, they're both singles collections, highlighted by '70s landmarks such as "Theme From 'Shaft'" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." Fanatics may want to investigate Hot Buttered Soul and Black Moses. ~ John Floyd
