Wonderful is a collection of singles, B-sides and live tracks, and while it lacks the grandeur of Isaac Hayes’ other '70s work it's arguably more fun to listen to. It begins with an amazing extended take on Bill Wither’s “Ain’t No Sunshine,” recorded live at the Wattstax festival in Los Angeles in 1972 — an extraordinarily deep, tough rendition. Hayes brings out both the funk and the blues in the song, highlighted by his late-song incorporation of Ray Charles’ “Lonely Avenue.” The remainder of Wonderful is drawn from singles Hayes released in his 1969 to 1974 prime. These songs confirm his abilities as a master interpreter. He takes on Bread’s soft pop hit “Baby I’m-a Want You” and Hank Williams’ “I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still In Love With You)” and squeezes from each equal amounts of sexual emotion. Of the Hayes originals included here, “Wonderful” stands out for its pimped-out strut and classy arrangement. The collection closes with Hayes double-sided 1969 Christmas single, a Stax label tradition. Who but Ike could create a sensuous bedroom mood from the usual holiday trappings?
