Isaac Hayes Sings For Lovers

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
It wasn't often that Isaac Hayes sung not for lovers, but he gets his own volume in the Sings for Lovers series anyway. By no means definitive, Sings for Lovers nonetheless is a decent overview of Hayes' '70s albums, though the number of radio edits detract from the epic scope of his best output.

The 1976 albums Groove-A-Thon and Juicy Fruit (Disco Freak) get a surprising amount of attention, but there are several big guns, like "I Can't Turn Around," "Joy, Pt. 1," "The Look of Love," and "(They Long to Be) Close to You."
