The Isley Brothers: It's Your Thing – The Story Of The Isley Brothers

Chris Roberts, Uncut, January 2000

A COLOSSAL, combustible funk-fest; enough for a throbbing theme-night in your very own living room. Furry kaftans and diamante-encrusted bomber jackets optional. Emerging from Lincoln Heights, Cincinnati, the Isleys have kick-started shifts in black pop music across most of five decades, twisting every genre to their own ends.
