Hawk’s Friday Funk for March 26, 2010

It’s Your Thing!

You’ve heard the tune countless times on the radio and in TV commercials among other places but rest of The Isley Brothers catalog is well worth a look.

The trio of brothers had a number of hits in the 60s and 70s with memorable tunes like “Shout!” and 1974′s sexy “That Lady”.

Around 1970 though, the funk was hard and the groove was aggressive.  Check out the track “Keep on Doing” from the 1970 album “Get Into Something”.   A killer tune that James Brown and the J.B.’s would later embellish for their searing and much-sampled “The Grunt”.
