Love Attack is the eighteenth studio album by American Soul musician Isaac Hayes. The album was released on September 20, 1988, by Columbia/CBS Records. It features a new version of Jerry Butler's "I Stand Accused", which Hayes already covered on his 1970 album The Isaac Hayes Movement and a cover of Billy Joel’s "She's Got a Way". Like the previous album U-Turn, Love Attack features mainly synthesizers and drum machines, and the same team of musicians including Gerald Jackson and Bill Mueller.[2]
