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!
