"... remains one of the crown jewels of American film music and undoubtedly one of the most definitive and innovative scores to ever set sound to celluloid, not to mention a sonic testament to the genius of the amazing Mr. Hayes ..."
- PopMatters.com

"Shaft gave voice to a newly assertive black pride ... at least half of the movie's immediate iconic stature was down to Hayes' soundtrack, a revolutionary funk/soul masterpiece and black music's answer to Phil Spector's rich but edgy wall of sound ... made (Hayes) a cultural leader and a major player ... Shaft has a groove with legs ... 35 years on, Shaft may sound dated, but it's a sound that inspired a generation of soul musicians. Hayes' laid back delivery and gorgeous arrangements are still breathtaking and the album remains a quintessential slice of '70s soul."
- All About Jazz

Isaac Hayes will always be most closely associated with the Shaft soundtrack, the peak of his commercial and critical success. Released in 1971, the album and title track both reached number in the US and earned an Academy Award and three Grammy Awards.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
