Warthur
Infamously, Hot Buttered Soul was a rush job put together in the mad scramble to get some new product for Stax in 1969, after the split from Atlantic meant Stax lost the rights to its entire back catalogue and was left with no product. Promised the creative freedom he was denied on his debut album (Presenting...), Isaac Hayes stepped up to the challenge admirably. There's only four songs on here and there's clear attempts to pad out the running time with, for example, Isaac's epic spoken word introduction to By The Time I Get to Phoenix, but somehow the whole shambolic mess ends up working a treat.
