The Isley Brothers: Get into Something [T-Neck, 1970]
Five of the ten tracks on this album were r&b hits, and even "Girls Will Be Girls," a silly song that does not reflect "Take Inventory"'s astonishing views on the subjection of women, has its pleasures. But none of them went pop--or tore up the r&b charts--because none of them was more than a serviceable rehash. The first side rocks, the second side fluctuates, and let's hope they get into something else soon.
