ISLEY BROTHERS - BETWEEN THE SHEETS

The Essential Isley Brothers [Clean]

Too low to display


I have heard of Isley brothers.

The Isley Brothers are easily one of the most influential acts on modern pop and R & B and their importance is clearly still appreciated as fans continue to sell out shows to allow the band to keep performing the music they adore so much. With three of the original members having now deceased, it is up to Ronald Isley and Ernie Isley to continue the band's legacy.

The Isleys have had success in many genres since their beginnings in the 1950s, arguably hitting their peak and writing some of their tightest music in the '70s. From "Who's That Lady" to "It's Your Thing," they've produced numerous hits that are still blaring on radios (and commercials) across the land. Centered for most of their career on the vocal talents of Ronald, Rudolph and Vernon, in their era the Isleys benefited from the addition of a couple more brothers to the backing band: bassist Marvin and fiery guitar player Ernie (plus a brother-in-law on keyboards). Some of their best work can be found on the album , but the seminal "Footsteps in the Dark" is not to be missed either. Among other accomplishments, they toured with a young guitarist named Jimmy James (later known as Jimi Hendrix -- his work can be heard on the single "Testify"). From Doo-Wop songs to Soul tracks, Funk grooves to Disco beats, the Isley Brothers have always remembered how to inject a memorable melody into every number they record.

Sorry I have not heard of Isley brothers.

  • The Isley Brothers
  • I really like the Isley Brothers. Good info on them.

    It is of no surprise that the Isley Brothers have reached the extreme heights of critical and commercial success. Thirteen of their albums have been certified gold, and they have received several honors including their inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Their setlist encompasses a great amount of their many hits, and they are sure to make the whole audience go insane jumping up and down, and shaking all around when they play their most well regarded song, “Twist & Shout”.
