The Isley Brothers: Mission to Please (T-Neck/Island)
Michael A. Gonzales, Vibe, June 1996
MY MAMA HAS informed me that when I was six and shaking my booty in front of the stereo, whenever the radio DJ played the Isley Brothers' 1969 'It's Your Thing', I would lose my mind. Though I was hardly ready for the Apollo, something about that funky track forced me to bellow at the top of my young lungs and slide across the floor like a Soul Train dancer.
