Inspired by @djsundog , here are three things I learned about the Isley Brothers today.
1. Their first Top 40 hit - Twist and Shout. The first version of the song, produced by Phil Spector when he didn’t know what he was doing, was a dud, so the songwriter Bert Berns re-recorded it with them. 2. Jimi Hendrix played guitar with them in the mid-60s. 3. They wrote “Shout”!
The Isley Brothers: They’ve been so good to all of us.
