Isaac Hayes: Now You're Talking…

David Cavanagh, Q, August 1995

His songs, and their oozing intros, hot, buttery and impossibly soulful, seemed to stretch out to the crack of doom. But come the '80s, the great Black Moses found himself playing second fiddle to the fat Walrus Of Love. David Cavanagh goes walking (and, indeed, driving) in Memphis with Isaac Hayes.

Total word count of piece: 1917
