Isley BrothersEverything You Always Wanted To Hear By The Isley Brothers But Were Afraid To Ask For ... LP
T Neck/CBS, 1976. Very Good ... $6.99
A very cool record – one done as part of a promo-only series from Columbia/Epic – with cover art that replicated the then-popular book titled Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask! 8 numbers from their mid 70s prime: "That Lady", "What It Comes Down To", "Summer Breeze", "Live It Up", "Midnight Sky", "Need A Little Taste Of Love", "Fight The Power" and "Hope You Feel Better Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has light wear and mostly split bottom seam.)

Isley BrothersLet's Go! ... LP
Stateside (UK), Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Early early work by The Isley Brothers – recorded for United Artists in the early and mid 60s, in the years between their hit work for RCA and Motown. The material here leans heavily on the "Twist & Shout" sound of the RCA years – taking elements of R&B group styles, and forging them into a tighter 60s soul approach – one that got a bit more sophisticated as the years went on, but which was still very much in the party soul mode in which the boys first made their mark. There's a total of 16 tracks in all – nicely packaged with good notes – and titles include "What'cha Gonna Do", "Surf & Shout", "Please Please Please", "She's The One", "Shake It With Me Baby", "Who's That Lady", "My Little Girl", "Love Is A Wonderful Thing", "Open Up Her Eyes", and "She's Gone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great UK pressing! Cover has very light wear near the top, but is great overall.)

✨✧ Isley BrothersThis Old Heart Of Mine ... LP
Tamla, 1966. Very Good ... $3.99
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a bit to let the vocals really take off with straightforward power – that mix of raw energy and sublime precision they'd explore later on the T-Neck years – helped strongly here by the Motown influence. Titles include the massive hit "This Old Heart Of Mine", plus "Take Some Time Out for Love", "Baby Don't You Do It", "Nowhere To Run", "Put Yourself In My Place", "Seek & You Shall Find", and "Who Could Ever Doubt My Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 2 globes pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear. Vinyl plays with a light click on the first two tracks of side two.)

Isley BrothersWinner Takes All ... LP
T Neck, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A key album in the Isley Brothers "extended funk" mode of the 70s – a style in which the group approached nearly every tune by adding in a "part 2" in order to stretch out the groove! The style here is bass-heavy funk, but less of the sort that other groups were using at the time – because the Isleys still bring in plenty of soul to the mix, and resist popping the bass too much so that they still have plenty of space for the slinky vocals that always make their work so great. Most of the titles on the album have this extended approach, and titles include "I Wanna Be With You (parts 1 & 2)", "Liquid Love (parts 1 & 2)", "Winner Takes All", "Love Comes & Goes (parts 1 & 2)", "Let's Fall In Love (parts 1 & 2)", "Let Me In Your Life (parts 1 & 2)", "Life In The City (parts 1 & 2)", "Go For What You Know", and "Mind Over Matter (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing. Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Isley Brothers3 + 3 ... LP
T Neck, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing little album from the Isley Brothers – one in which the group manage to explore their growing love of the electric guitar, yet somehow sound even more soulful than before! The music is slinky and seductive, with a wonderful style that's never too overly funky – just laidback and flowing, with a vibe that's sometimes mellow, sometimes a bit more upbeat – but never too over the top or rocking. Titles include the group's the monster cut "That Lady" (parts 1 & 2) – a totally righteous groover, even if it has been in a million commercials over the years – and their cover of Seals & Croft's epic "Summer Breeze", which is ten times doper than the original! Other tracks include "Listen To The Music", "If You Were There", "What It Comes Down To", and "Sunshine (Go Away Today)". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK Epic orange label pressing.)

✨✧ Isley BrothersI'll Be Home For Christmas (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Def Soul, 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It's records like this that will keep us loving the Isley Brothers year after year – and with such great Holiday tunes on the set, you can bet we'll be pulling this one out for many Christmases to come! Despite the slightly postured look on the front cover, the duo's sounding nicely laidback here – those warm Ronald Isley vocals sliding out just as they did back in the day – illuminating both Christmas classics and a few new tunes as well – all served up with a gently soulful groove. There's nothing too smooth, or too sleepy about this album – and the whole thing's just as great as you might hope! Titles include the exclusive tracks "I'm In Love" and "What Can I Buy You" – plus "Isley Christmas Medley", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Winter Wonderland", and "Silent Night".

Johnnie TaylorWho's Making Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax/Craft, 1968. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
Killer soul from Johnnie Taylor, and really his first major LP! The record was Johnnie's second for Stax – and although the first one was good, this was the record that really had Johnnie hitting that funky bluesy sound that became his trademark into the 70s. The title cut – "Who's Making Love" – is a monster groover with a funky hook that was covered instantly by many jazz combos, and which riffs along with an Isley Brothers-ish kind of sound. The album features loads of other tasty numbers, too – all produced by Al Jackson and Don Davis – and featuring the cuts "Poor Make Believer", "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water", "Can't Trust Your Neighbor", and "Payback Hurts".

✨✧ Main IngredientEuphrates River ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but the group produced themselves, giving the record a sexy funky feeling in the best parts, not that dissimilar from some of Marvin Gaye's work, or records by groups like The Isley Brothers or The O'Jays. Includes great versions of two Seals & Crofts songs – "Summer Breeze" and "Euphrates" – both a perfect example of this style, as is "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" – plus a great reading of Willie Hutch's "California My Way", which has a super-dope sample at the beginning. Of course, the album still includes material like their hit " "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely", a sweetly style AM radio pop hit in the band's best style of earlier years. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)
