CD Reviews

Memphis soul in overdrive.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I heard this record before I was able to hear "Hot Buttered Soul" and hence I was unaware of Isaac & the Movement's penchant for epic lenght R&B arrangements. When I first heard the 11-plus minute version of George Harrison's "Something", I was simply blown away. It boast a Noel Pointer-ish galactic violin journey abetted by some of the most inventive pre-"Shaft" wah-wah guitar work ever committed to--in those days--vinyl. The classic Butler cut "I Stand Accused", also of epic length, should be placed in the Soul Music Hall of Fame's catalogue as the most successful renditon of the tune. Anyway, long, long, long before Isaac found his fortunes as the voice of Chef in South Park, even before "Shaft", we were calling the man "Cosmic Hayes". This dude really knows soul, and this album shows he was in great form during his Stax/Enterprise years."
An album that has literally always been there . . .

". . . I first heard this album back in 1972 when I was three and remember always asking my father to put on the "blue 8-track" it came in. The 8-track has long since warped, but thanks to CD, the album still remains steadfast as part of my collection. Always a huge fan of Ike's arrangements, I'm particularly amazed that his "Something" is actually ten times better and more interesting than the original. The John Blair violin solo blasts high pitched over the runaway drumming during it's raucous finale, with the screeching representing the correct way to climax an already overwhelming composition. Familiar realities come into play lyrically on "I Stand Accused" and "One Big Unhappy Family", as the pain felt by the narrator translates perfectly into the arrangement. Never has a four-song album affected the listener so much. The depth in these songs is staggering. No wonder I've been listening to this for thirty years. . . ."

"When Isaac laid the groove on us before flowing into I Stand Accused, we had no idea what we were getting, but we knew we had received a magic moment. Then he took the Beatles song Something and orchestrated it to no end. Man, what a time."
