1978's For The Sake Of Love saw Hayes record a sequel to 'Theme from Shaft' ('Shaft II'), but was most famous for the single 'Zeke The Freak', a song that would have a shelf life of decades and be a major part of the House movement in the UK. The same year, Fantasy Records, which had bought out Stax Records, released an album of Hayes's non-album singles and archived recordings as a 'new' album, Hotbed, in 1978.
