#6 R&B, #12 Pop
This was the group’s biggest chart topper during their short tenure at Motown.
I just had to do two Isley Brothers posts in a row because Ron Isley’s tenor is “contagious” like those chips that you just can’t eat just one of (LOL). I promise a new Motown Guy group next post — but in the mean time please enjoy this favorite of mine. Listen to those Funk Brothers horns: aren’t they just fabulous on this Lamont Dozier/Eddie Holland/Brian Holland/Sylvia Moy classic?!
The Isley Brothers were *finally* inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum as performers in 1992. You may read a brief career biography on the Brothers at the Rock Hall site here.
