Ernie Isley: Pride of the Isleys

Davitt Sigerson, Black Music, September 1977

"THE ALBUM, 3+3, featuring 'That Lady', was in '73, but since 1969, we've been more or less involved with the Isley Brothers. My father was kind of ahead of his time. The Isley Brothers were originally a quartet, singing around in churches in parts of Ohio and Kentucky, and Mom was the accompanist. He wanted them to play instruments and he got them guitars and bass, but they just didn't want to play.
