Go for Your Guns - Isley Brothers (The)

Go for Your Guns
Released 24/10/11. Originally formed as a gospel quartet in the 1950s, THE ISLEY BROTHERS went on to massive success in a decades-spanning career which has seen them produce music in genres from doo-wop to R&B, funk, soul and rock. Reaching their third decade as a musical act in the 1970s, The Isley Brothers continued to reinvent themselves with line-up changes and new sounds ranging from 1973's hit rock anthem Summer Breeze to the socially-conscious soul and funk of their mid-70s albums.

GO FOR YOUR GUNS, released in 1977, reached #1 on the R&B album charts and #6 on the Pop charts and has gone on to become many fans' favourite Isley Brothers album. First single THE PRIDE (PART 1) topped the R&B singles chart and was followed by the funk rock of LIVIN' IN THE LIFE, which reached the Top 5 on the R&B chart and also the US Pop Top 40.

However, the album's true lasting classics are the oft-sampled FOOTSTEPS IN THE DARK (which became the basis for ICE CUBE's IT WAS A GOOD DAY) and VOYAGE TO ATLANTIS, which although only a small R&B hit at the time, later became a Quiet Storm radio classic and a staple of the band's live shows.

Harvest for the World- Expanded Edition
Released on 24/10/11.

Originally formed as a gospel quartet in the 1950s, THE ISLEY BROTHERS went on to massive success in a decades-spanning career which has seen them produce music in genres from doowop to R&B, funk, soul and rock.


Reaching their third decade as a musical act in the 1970s, The Isley Brothers continued to reinvent themselves with line-up changes and new sounds ranging from 1973's hit rock anthem Summer Breeze to the socially-conscious soul of the title track from their 1976 album HARVEST FOR THE WORLD. HARVEST FOR THE WORLD was a landmark release for the Isley Brothers. While other Soul and Funk acts responded to the commercial pressure to record Disco, the band continued to absorb new influences while steadfastly progressing their sound.

First single WHO LOVES YOU BETTER became a Top 10 R&B smash hit and reached the US Pop charts. Second single HARVEST FOR THE WORLD followed suit, in addition to giving the group their first Top Ten UK hit of the 1970s, re-establishing THE ISLEY BROTHERS as an act with an international audience.
