Winner Takes All - Isley Brothers (The)

Winner Takes All
Originally formed as a gospel quartet in the 1950s, THE ISLEY BROTHERS went on to massive success in a decades-spanning career that has seen them cross all 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.
WINNER TAKES ALL, released in 1979, reached #3 on the R&B charts and #14 on the Pop charts despite being a full double album, proving the high popularity of the group at this time.
The first single, and opening track on the album, I WANNA BE WITH YOU (PART 1), swept all before it to secure The Isley Brothers’ 5th R&B chart topper in early ’79. The title track, WINNER TAKES ALL, continued the chart success hitting #38 on the R&B chart before the group made a departure from their R&B/Funk/Rock sound of previous years and hit the Dance charts with the contemporary track IT’S A DISCO NIGHT (ROCK DON’T STOP) with Rudy Isley on lead vocal helping the single climb to #44 on the Disco charts and #27 R&B while across the Atlantic it would peak at #14 on the UK pop chart.
BBR is very proud to add WINNER TAKES ALL to our previous ISLEY BROTHERS releases. Newly re-mastered and repackaged with extensive liner notes and expansive bonus content.
This BBR Remaster is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Funk and Disco fans out there!

Press:-

"Suzi Quatro is a pioneer female rocker, who wrote the rules as she went along. No mountain too high, no river too deep for this Detroit-born rock ‘n’ roller. She’s conquered them all, and has continued to rock hard for nearly 50 years.”

Hang Together
Odyssey started out as a New York based band, they later gained a lot of success in the UK gaining 5 top ten hits between 1977 and 1982 as well as three top 40 albums. HANG TOGETHER was released in 1980 and reached #38 in the UK, leading the way for further success with later albums. DON’T TELL ME TELL HER was their first single release and reached #44 stateside.

However in the UK USE IT UP AND WEAR IT OUT (the original B-Side) was later released and became their biggest hit reaching UK #1. This song still receives a lot of radio play to this day. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT was the second single release from HANG TOGETHER and gained the #6 spot in the UK. This song was also covered by Tindersticks in 1999 HANG TOGETHER gained the #36 position in UK and helped the album into the top 40. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, HANG TOGETHER is a must for all Soul, Disco and Funk fans out there!

Press:-


‘Criminally ignored in their US homeland where their only top 40 hit was native New Yorker – Odyssey were more than one hit wonders in the UK, putting together a run of impressive an polished hits in the R&B/dance vein. Now remastered and expanded, Hang Together was the first of three consecutive albums by the group to crack top 40 her, and arguably the best. Music Week, May 2012

"Native New Yorker labelled them a disco act but producer Sandy Linzer widened the trio's appeal on this 1980 LP with Lillian Lopez's beautiful vocal on 'If You're Looking For A Way Out'". MOJO, September 2012
