Isley Brothers - Voice Your Choice

The Isley Brothers originated in Cincinnati, Ohio and moved to New York in 1957. They started out as a trio with O'Kelly, Ronald and Rudolph, then added their younger brothers Ernie and Marvin, as well as brother-in-law Chris Jasper in 1969. Sadly, Marvin passed away in 2010 at age 56.

They charted an impressive 49 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1959 and 2001, with four Top Tens, three Gold and one Platinum record.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents The Isley Brothers. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either This Old Heart Of Mine (Is Weak For You) or Twist & Shout. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
