The legendary R&B/Soul groups chronicles 24 years of music with 'The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983)'

For over five decades, The Isley Brothers have pretty much created music that has probably been the soundtrack to some point of your life. That heart wrenching break-up? The Isley’s Brothers---and a little 151 and coke or a glass of Moscato---were there. Bedroom relations with your man? Cue “Between the Sheets.” Your day off from work? Is that “Summer Breeze” we hear? Simply put, these men have the made life defining music.

Now, the legendary group is chronicling a substantial piece of their long musical legacy with the release of The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983), a 23-disc greatest hits box set that features every album the group released during that 24-year-period.

From their days as a 1950’s era “doo-wop/gospel vocal group,” to their transformation into one the “world's preeminent R&B rock 'n' soul powerhouse party” bands; this collection is a must have for that Isley Brothers' music aficionado.


The box set features newly remastered versions of 21 albums released on both of the record labels, and 84 rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks. Major, right?

If that wasn’t enough, the set also includes for the first time release of the "Great Lost Isley Brothers Album": Wild In Woodstock: The Isley Brothers Live At Bearsville Sound Studio 1980, which many have pegged as a “pivotal moment in the fusion of rock and funk music.”

Born and raised in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio; O'Kelly Isley, Jr., Rudolph Isley, Ronald Isley and a fourth brother, Vernon Isley (who died a couple of years after their first incarnation)--began performing as a group in 1954.

The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983) is available on Amazon.com now.
