Platinum-selling main theme soundtrack and funk-soul masterpiece from Isaac Hayes, which skyrocketed to the #1 song in the U.S., then followed that by winning the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 1972 Oscars, giving Hayes the first win by any African American in any category but acting, and turned a middleweight blaxplotation flick into a cultural milestone and cult favorite. Hayes performed it at the Oscars, and rocked it again 30 years later for his induction to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Who's A-Number One?
(And to the Anon who queried me about "Why Shaft?"
Well, besides because it's a great track, you tell me: What have you been getting from TPTB for at least the last 2½ - if not 100 - years?. You're welcome. It's now a whole new theme song, i'n'it?)
