3 + 3 (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Aug 1973
By the release of 3+3 in 1973, the Isley Brothers had supplanted the gritty Motown approach of earlier albums with a harder funk template. With its shrill guitar solos juxtaposed against Ron's velvet voice and the group's soft harmonies, "That Lady" is an obvious standout. Covers of "Summer Breeze" and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" are also satisfying.
