The Isley Brothers left Motown in 1968 and re-launched their T-Neck label through Buddah Records early the following year. This album was the first release for their revived imprint and it celebrated the group s newfound artistic freedom in the album s title. The album became a smash as the single 'It s Your Thing' rose all the way to #2 on the R&B charts. The success of that single catapulted the album all the way to #22 on the pop album charts. The band s instincts to move towards a funkier feel and a more prominent horn section appeared to intersect perfectly with popular tastes at the end of the sixties. 'It's Our Thing' has never before been issued as a stand-alone CD, and this Iconoclassic release marks the first time that the majority of this material has been remastered from the original master tapes.
