Believed to have been forever lost, the original 2" multitrack tapes from the 1996 collaboration between Brooklyn Funk Essentials and Isaac Hayes, were amazingly recovered from a dusty Bed-Stuy basement yesterday.

The soul music legend worked together with BFE and producer Danny Madden on music for a movie, where he was to star alongside blacksploitation diva Pam Grier. But the film was eventually re-written, and neither the music or the two megastars were in the final version of it. What will happen to the tapes now is anybody's guess.
