Shaft

The double album by Isaac Hayes was recorded for Stax Records’ Enterprise label as the soundtrack LP for the 1971 blaxploitation film, Shaft. The album mostly consists of instrumentals composed by Hayes as score for the film. It also features his vocals on three songs: “Soulsville,” “Do Your Thing” and “Theme from Shaft.” The Theme from Shaft won 3 Grammys in 1972. That same year, Hayes became the first African American to win an Academy Award in a non-acting category when Theme from Shaft was awarded Best Original Song.
