When first released in 1978 and 1979, these two Isaac Hayes albums coincided with a small commercial renaissance for the singer, who'd been out of the upper reaches of the charts since the mid-'70s. "Zeke the Freak," from For the Sake of Love, made the R&B Top 20, and his disco remake of the late-'50s Roy Hamilton hit "Don't Let Go" went Top 20 pop, dragging the album of the same name into the Top 40 as well. Still, these LPs - here combined onto a single-disc CD - were shadows of his best earlier work, even as they were true to his approach of mixing extended ballads, off-the-wall covers, and danceable soul-funk. For the Sake of Love offered a couple of his trademark smoochy soul ballad remakes of white pop songs in Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are" and James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," and admirable humanitarianism in "If We Ever Need Peace," as well as tapping into the disco movement with "Zeke the Freak." It's dragged down, however, by "Shaft II," an expectedly pointless instrumental remake of "Shaft." Disco was a bigger influence on Don't Let Go, particularly in the title track and another '50s cover (of "Fever"), though otherwise the mood was lights-low. Still, the material on this compilation was low-energy, and at times lethargic, when stacked up against the best of his achievements.
