Synopsis

Product Description
The excellent debut album of the 'younger' half of the classic Isley Brothers 3+3 lineup makes its worldwide CD debut on the Iconoclassic label. The trio had taken over the main songwriting chores for the Isley Brothers as the seventies had evolved into the eighties and IJI had entertained splitting from the older trio as early as 1980. The newer more 'eighties' direction and recording techniques (as popularized on 'Between The Sheets') were not a comfortable place for the elder Isleys but Ernie Isley, Chris Jasper and Marvin Isley jumped into the deep end and did not look back. 'Look The Other Way' was a perfect record for its time, got tons of airplay and climbed into the top 15 of the R&B charts and carried the album along with it. Other standout tracks include the ballad 'Serve You Right' and the danceable 'Kiss And Tell' (its 12 inch version is included as a bonus track). Iconoclassic s release of Broadway s Closer To Sunset Boulevard makes this the only currently in-print Isley Jasper Isley material available worldwide

Great R&B/rock fusion from ultra-prolific musical family
Glen Zimmerman | West Bumblefuch, USA | 10/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Isley Jasper Isley, which is Isley siblings Marvin & Ernie Isley and their cousin Chris Jasper, made this breezy album in 1984 that combines the trademark melodicism of The Isley Brothers with some brilliant and energetic guitar playing and synthesizer work, especially on the title track and "Kiss & Tell.""
