Lately, i’ve been thinking about The Mighty Isley Bros (Please Free Ron..) and their 72-79 period in which they truly raised the stakes in their sound without getting caught up in the Disco sensation (I LOVE DISCO). They remained true to their sound while constantly reinventing themselves and raising the bar.
The two songs featured are probably in my top 5 of Isley tunes. My big brother use to come in and blast the “Go For Your Guns” lp on 10 1/2 when I was a kid and I still hear that album the same way to this day.
I’ve been checking out Mr. Warren for about a year on YT and I am a huge fan. He literally breaks down The Isley Science! This is a man who truly has mastered the craft! One thing to always remember that you can tell when a MASTER is in the building, Mr Warren effortlessly breaks it down. Listen, Learn and Enjoy.
PS: I always thought “Climbing Up The Ladder” should have been a single, it would’ve been HUGE in the Rock market easily.
