Givin' It Back by The Isley Brothers
Released: Jan 1971
Label: EPIC / ASSOCIATED / LEGACY
The Isleys threw off the fancy duds and embraced Bill Withers' acoustic soul-rock sound on this 1971 stunner. The opening medley of Neil Young's "Ohio" and Hendrix's "Machine Gun" links lyrical outrage with musical grandeur, while their 10-minute reading of Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay" is an unparalleled romantic epic. And they make it all funky. Genius.
