Product Description & Reviews

The first career-spanning collection from the First Family of Rock, Pop and Soul, featuring 50 songs from 10 different labels covering 40 years from doo wop to hip-hop! Includes four unreleased live performances, two rare sides with a young sideman named Jimi Hendrix, 20 Top 10 hits and six #1 R&B hits, among 'em Shout; Twist & Shout; This Old Heart of Mine; Between the Sheets; It's Your Thing; Fight the Power; Caravan of Love , and more. A 64-page full-color booklet ices the cake. The history of black American music is a story of self-reinvention, and nobody but James Brown has started afresh as many times and as successfully as the Isley Brothers. It's Your Thing is the first time their entire 40-year career has been surveyed in one place, including 29 (!) chart hits. It spills over with innovation: rock & roll ("Twist and Shout"), tough R&B ("Shout"), rich Motown soul ("This Old Heart of Mine"), furious, hard funk (the original "Fight the Power"), and even the mellower lover-man crooning that occupies a lot of the third disc. They integrated guitar into their soul like few others, and not only on the tracks here featuring Jimi Hendrix--after brother Ernie comes into his own as a guitarist on disc two, he gives the Brothers' singles a distinctive, prickly edge. And the gospel singing traditions they inherited come out in their fraternal harmonies, in the very spiritual hope that powers their songs from the rawest to the sweetest. --Douglas Wolk
