Their partnership lasted barely four years and just over 50
songs - but between 1965 and 1969 Isaac Hayes and David
Porter penned some of soul's most enduring anthems of
their era, many of which are still being regularly performed
and recorded to this day.
" Ace are delighted to welcome them into our ever-popular
Songwriter Series this month with "Wrap It Up", a fantastic
collection featuring almost half of the total number of
songs they wrote together in versions you would expect,
and versions you wouldn't.
" Hayes and Porter wrote for almost every major act on the
Stax roster, but the commercial appeal of their songs gave
them appeal to artists operating outside the perimeters of
soul music. ZZ Top, Peter Frampton, the (Count) Bishops
and Charlie Rich are just some of the fine turns you will
find here essaying Hayes and Porter copyrights alongside
Stax stalwarts such as Johnnie Taylor, Mable John, the
Emotions, the Soul Children, Otis Redding and Carla
Thomas, and, of course, Sam and Dave whose recordings
of their songs were what established Hayes and Porter as a
peerless songwriting force in the first place.
" As lovingly curated and expertly annotated as you would
expect any Ace project in the Songwriter Series to be,
"Wrap It Up" is another valuable piece in the great
American songwriting jigsaw, and very much a collection
where the songs that were not necessarily big hits are
easily on a par with those that were. It is a fitting audio
tribute to two men who have between them won just about
every major award going, from Grammys to election to the
Songwriters' Hall of Fame.
