What a classy cover shot, too bad I had qty. 2 of record one (side B below).  This is a 50's band that then  toured with Jimi Hendrix and made regular appearances on SOUL TRAIN to forge a killer new sound and has been an obsession of mine since I first heard 'Brown-Eyed Girl' and 'Lover's Eve' and 'For The Love Of You and Voyage To Atlantis' and 'Groove With You' that all made the 'Back In The Days Of Soul' radio playlist on Sunday nights during college years.  My old SST-obsessed friend Fred had the same wide-eyed loving reaction to the 'Need A Little Taste of Love' just like when I played him the Rimshots 'Superdisco' as we laughed after words at how incredible the sound was that we were hearing.  Anyways, I had posted all the vinyl in the title after ripping it with my old CIRCULAR S-120 Ortofon stylus that digs INTO THE GROOVE further but pulled it same day as I thought I had discovered an interference sound or thumping bass or something which I don't remember.  Well, long story short I pulled out the mp3's from my yellow 'redo' folder and it sounded just fine!  Well, I will let you all be the judges and I probably will redo it as I have been enjoying the new elliptical Ortofon Concorde Club Jan. 2018 series now offered (however 8 mV instead of 10 mV for the old S-120 for the Serrato PC thing which I don't use) that I am liking almost as much as the circular that someone jsut told me is what 33 RPM is made for??  But main reason for the post is the ISLEY BROTHERS just announced NEW TOUR DATES in the USA and I missed them last time.  I added the live 1969 vinyl pictured--which is a new rip--and will let you know I have collected them so long that I had to separate new from old sound by starting with 3+3 LP so I will have to do the older stuff as well for which I have a lot (you get a taste of it however in the 20,000 plus free show for the local fans that I tacked on to the end as a reminder.

"made on Soul Train"? Are you not aware that the Isleys have been around since the 1950s???
