Here’s a prime cut from tonight’s offering over at The Midnight Tracker.
Found earlier this week at the used record store: “Givin’ It Back,” a 1971 album of covers by the Isley Brothers.
Here’s the Isleys’ funked-up, souled-up take on a tune that was a hit for Eric Burdon and War a year earlier.
There’s plenty here to enjoy — John Mosley’s flute, Milton Westley’s Hammond organ, George Moreland’s percussion, Gary Jones’ conga, Ernie Isley’s guitar and, of course, great vocals by Ronald Isley.
“Spill the Wine,” the Isley Brothers from “Givin’ It Back,” 1971.
