Isaac Hayes - Joy

With Isaac Hayes being in the news so much lately involving the South Park/Scientology dispute I thought I would post my favorite track by him. Joy is from his late 60's/early 70's creative peak as an artist. Like many of his songs from the period it is an epic tune that clocks in at over 15 minutes with a fantastic groove, lots of strings and a good dose of sexual innuendo that builds to a great climax (no pun intended). Shaft is a fantastic song and a classic for good reason but Joy is it as far as I am concerned. Be aware that this is the original full length version and most collections contain only the single edit of the song. Unfortunately.
