I love that hard funk! As much as I love the Isleys, I think Ernie was under utilized. When he was let loose, he was Eddie Hazel good...

'Testify', showcased their young lead guitarist, Jimi Hendrix in 1964. Testify is often credited as being one of the first funk songs. (Recorded the same year, James Brown released "Outta Sight", which is often referred to as one of the first funk records also).
Testify is one of two singles to feature Jimi Hendrix on guitar, the other being "Move Over and Let Me Dance".

I feel like I am in heaven everytime Ron Isley sings. Summer Breeze, Whose That Lady, and For The Love Of You are great songs to cruise to in your car on a hot summer day.

As a Jimi Hendrix fan, Go For Your Guns including Climbing Up the Ladder (Part 1 and 2) got me into the Isley Brothers. Ernie Isley is a multi-instrumentalist, but started on the drums. Apparently Jimi Hendrix lived in the Isley home for two years, when Ernie was about 11 or 12-years-old.
