Meet "That Lady"

Purchase 3+3 for $3.99

The Isley Brothers 1973 hit "That Lady, Pt 1 and 2", which  peaked at #6 on the pop charts and #2 on the R and B charts,  was actually a remake of their 1964 song "Who's That Lady". The band, made of the three original Isley Brothers and cousins Ernie Isley, Marvin Isley and Chris Jasper, were jamming on the song, trying to give it a Santana feel, when they found that "fine, foxy new" sound.
Guitarist Ernie Isley especially shines.

One of the decade's great summer tunes! And one of its best albums which I will discuss at length later this year!
