Has to be 73 til 85. But early Shout and Motown era Isleys were great too.

Oh yes the Isley Brother's baby!! I loved the 73 til 85 era, that's when I was growing up. I still jam to this album and "Showdown" and all the hits. Always loved them! biggrin

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above.
RIP Sweet Prince

In 1979,the Isley Brothers released a double album,Winner Takes All.I think it's one of their strongest,yet most underrated albums

Image result for the isley brothers winner takes all

The Christopher Jasper era 1973 - 1983 lol

Chris Jasper was the first Isley Bros member to have his own cartoon. The first time I ever saw Chris Jasper was on his cartoon called Thundercats as Lion-O. I remember pointing at the TV and screaming "mom, mom look! It's the caravan of love guy". To see Lion-O out here singing about love and turning his sword into a keyboard was something I knew MJ or Prince would never be able to do.

When I first started to discover the funk about the 7th grade and went out and bought Showdown. A friend 2 years older than me had the previous 2 albums. So that mid to late 70's funk period to me.

59-72 era is too broad. I'd half that up. Or even into 3.

59-65 Early
66-68 Tamala Motown
69-72 T-Neck
PRINCE: Always and Forever
MICHAEL JACKSON: Always and Forever
