Isaac Hayes' landmark album to be reissued posthumously

Isaac Hayes' landmark 1971 album 'Black Moses' is set to be reissued next month.

The late soul man's original label Stax Records is set to re-release the album on February 24 in the US. The songs have been newly remastered from the original tape recordings, and the package will include recent liner notes written by Stax scholar Rob Bowman.

Also on February 24, Stax will reissue Hayes' 1976 disco album, 'Juicy Fruit'. This will be the first time the album will be available in CD format. It will include liner notes written by music historian Bill Dahl.

Hayes, who won several Grammy Awards and provided the voice of animated show 'Southpark's Chef later in his career, passed away in August, as previously reported.
