Just as Richard Roundtree's portrayal of Shaft's title character made manifest new frontiers of black heroism in the movies, so did Isaac Hayes' score introduce a different groove to Hollywood. Picking up where his kitchen-sink-and-all arrangements on Hot Buttered Soul and The Isaac Hayes Movement left off, Hayes coupled traditional film music with soul and funk modes; the resulting wah-wah-driven "Theme From ‘Shaft’" turned him from an R&B record star into a household name. With lyrics added, "Be Yourself" could have revived the careers of Sam and Dave, whose biggest hits had been the product of Hayes and former cohort David Porter. He even gave a nod to Burt Bacharach's work on the mellow "Early Sunday Morning." Shaft's artistic and commercial success led to an Academy Award win for Hayes (Best Original Song) and another nomination.
