The Stax Story (Part 6): Porter & Hayes, Producers

Jim Delehant, Hit Parader, February 1968

ISAAC HAYES and Dave Porter have written about one hundred and fifty songs together for Stax artists and also produced most of them. So far their most successful collaboration has been with Sam and Dave on songs like "Hold On I'm Coming" and "Soul Man." In addition, Isaac plays piano on his own sessions and many of the other Stax sessions.
