The Isley Brothers The Heat Is On Limited Edition Colored 180g LP from Friday Music
Mastered by Joe Reagoso / Manufactured at RTI
The Grammy Award-winning Isley Brothers have enjoyed one of the longest, most influential, and most diverse careers in the history of popular music – having survived nearly a half century of performing. The group's distinguished history spanned not only two generations of Isley siblings but also massive cultural shifts.
The founding members of the band were Ronald Isley, older brothers Rudy and Kelly and younger brother Vernon. Following the death of Vernon, the remaining trio launched a career into doo-wop scoring with their first million-selling hit single, "Shout," in 1959. Follow-up successes came with the 1962 single, "Twist and Shout" and the 1966 Motown single, "This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)."
Following the release of their 1969 Grammy Award-winning, "It's Your Thing" and subsequent other hits on their own label, the family eventually grew to include younger brothers Ernie and Marvin Isley as well as brother-in-law Chris Jasper. From 1973 until 1983, the group would release a successive string of hit albums and singles on the R&B charts, becoming one of the few successful black groups to successfully cross over into the pop charts due to their mixture of soul, funk and rock and hit albums like 3 + 3 and The Heat Is On.
Originally issued in 1975, the double-platinum certified The Heat Is On perfectly encapsulates both sides of the iconic group with the anthemic "Fight The Power (Part 1 & 2)" and the smooth ballad "For The Love Of You (Part 1 & 2)." Friday Music is pleased to offer up a limited edition colored 180g vinyl pressing of The Isely Brothers 1975 classic with remastering courtesy of Joe Reagoso and manufacturing from RTI.
