Was watching the olympics and happened to see this story come across CNN…

Gone at 65...  we will miss you Chief!
Gone at 65... we will miss you Chief!

Soul singer and arranger Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film “Shaft,” has died, sheriff’s officials in Memphis, Tennessee, reported Sunday.

Relatives found Hayes, 65, unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Schular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department.

Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff’s department said.

No foul play is suspected, the agency said in a written statement.

Hayes was a longtime songwriter and arranger for Stax Records in Memphis, playing in the studio’s backup band and crafting tunes for artists such as Otis Redding and Sam and Dave in the 1960s.

He released his first solo album in 1967.

In 1971, the theme from “Shaft” became a pop hit and won an Academy Award for best original theme song. The song and the movie score also won Grammy awards for best original score and movie theme.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002

Isaac Hayes – Instrumentals

Instrumentals is just what it says: instrumental tracks by Hayes, from the first half of the 1970s. As could be expected, most of the songs are from soundtracks that Hayes did during the period. While this funk is more atmospheric than innovative, it’s mood music par excellence on those occasions when you want to simulate the vibe of cruising dimly lit bars in search of a good time. Hayes let some of his jazzier inclinations come to the fore on some of the compositions (like “Cafe Regio’s,” the B-side to “Shaft”), and his band was tight but smooth. There is a previously unreleased instrumental version of “Type Thang” (which appears on Shaft in a vocal take), as well as an instrumental arrangement of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”.

Track list:

1 Hung Up on My Baby 6:18
2 Ike’s Mood, Pt. 1 6:33
3 No Name Bar 6:09
4 Let’s Stay Together 3:45
5 Café Regio’s 5:57
6 Blue’s Crib 5:13
7 Now We’re One 2:25
8 Dorinda’s Party 4:35
9 Type Thang 3:58
10 Pursuit of the Pimpmobile 9:03
11 Driving in the Sun 6:03
12 Ellie’s Love Theme 3:15
13 The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face [Mono Version] 4:58
