Released in 1969, this record is a masterclass in musicality and a testament to Hayes's unparalleled talent as a singer, songwriter, and arranger.
The album opens with "Walk On By," an epic, 12-minute reimagining of the classic Burt Bacharach-Hal David composition. Hayes's deep and seductive voice, accompanied by lush orchestration and innovative production, transforms the song into a soulful journey.
"Hot Buttered Soul" comprises just four tracks, with each one being a sprawling, emotive opus. The album's extended song lengths provide Hayes with ample room to weave intricate musical tapestries, exploring themes of love, heartbreak, and sensuality.
