Deluxe edition 2 CD set includes remastered Original Soundtrack and 22 bonus tracks from the Original Score. Comes in Softpak case
After recording the music that would be used in the film in Culver City, CA, Isaac Hayes returned to Memphis and the familiar confines of the Stax studios to re-record the songs from Shaft. It would be those later recordings that would be released in 1971 as “Music from the Soundtrack.” The original versions of the songs used in the film wouldn’t see the light of day in any form until 2008, when they appeared as part of a limited-edition Shaft box set now out of print. It’s taken nearly 50 years, but finally both the music from the film and the later recordings used for the soundtrack can be heard together in a 2-disc package.
