Midnight Tracker sampler, Vol. 4

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.

Be sure to check out the rest of Side 2 over at The Midnight Tracker.

  1. Thank you. I’m on the lookout for funky 70’s records like this too. They seem to click together and lift up my mood instantly.
