Isley Brothers - That's The Way Love Is

Looking at the "My Love Is Your Love" thread suddenly reminded me of another monstrous Isley Brothers stomper which I've NEVER ever heard out anywhere. Has anyone else heard this played out or did too many people think it was a pale cover of the Marvin Gaye tune?

Heard it played at Bury Town Hall about 9 years ago, along with Edwin Starr - Weakness is you and Marv Johnson - I miss you.

Hi Ian

Funny how one record leads to another, and how one record, which really gets to you opens your ears to a particular artist(s) voice, who, hitherto that point in time hadn't even featured on your radar. This Isley Brothers thread(s) being the perfect example - well, in my case anyway. If that makes sense.

Funny old world innit. :D

Peter

OK, so that's one play. I mean, unless I'm nuts, doesn't this sound like a dead cert?

Always a good reaction on the dancefloor when played in Oz. Been playing it consistently for over 20 years off the Australian demo  ....

Play this out all the time. Have sold one or two as well, in fact got one up at the moment. Always loved it since hearing it on a compilation tape about 1974.

I played this at North wings about 5 years ago (and a fair few times since),.  I remember Steve Brown playing it a few months before, at the same venue.    U.S. Demo here, a superb record, thankfully not hammered weekly

Hi ian.

I used to play this at The North Cheshire in the 90's.

Always packed the floor, as did 'Why when love is gone'. Two great dancers.

Playing this at Movin on a Groove demo and issue in the box but cannot believe you haven't heard this played out recently as it's not rare

 Another great Norman Whitfield recording but personally i prefer the Temptations version on Puzzle people

Norman also recorded it on Marvin probably at the same session as Grapevine so i would have thought Isleys was the original

Gladys Knight and the Pips did a great version on their "Feelin' Bluesy" album.

The Isleys version of "That's The Way.." was recorded between August 26 and August 30th, 1966.

Marvin's version was recorded between Nov. 30th, 1968- Dec. 6, 1968.

you could remedy that frank...............

by playing it out yourself:thumbup:

it's always had the odd play as far as I can remember??

but tracks like this do get neglected/forgotten/passed over for mega-money/mega-rare records !!!

They were great nights Mark. We came over from Burnley for the first one and came every month for the first year or so.

For some reason I remember you played Oh My Darling as the last record on that first night.
