I like them. I think they have done a lot for the style of music that they play.

Not sure about what they are doing now, if anything.

I grew up with the Isley's during the T-Neck years in the 1970's. In addition to the excellent 'Go For Your Guns', I would also recommend '3+3' and 'The Heat is On'. The Isley's had a really nice rock edge to their music that distinguished them from a lot of the other soul funk bands of the time. Great stuff and really holds up today.

So I downloaded this compilation and it seems to have just about all if the hits, but I'm wondering if I'm missing any. I also downloaded Go for your Guns, based on a suggestion on here and found out that the "essential" album didn't have hits like Climbing up the ladder and Livin Life. So what other essential tracks am I missing?

'Who's that lady' 'Summer breeze' and 'For the love of you' are my favorite Isley tunes.
