Today, Into the Groovy takes yet another look back to the 1970's, because, as I have long pointed out during my adulthood, I have a soft spot for that decade's R&B. In this case, I've been listening to The Isley Brothers' 1972 classic "That Lady," a rewrite of their 1964 hit "Who's That Lady." The Isley Brothers are a Grammy-Winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group hailing from Cincinnati. Although the configuration's of the band, as well as musical styles, have changed over the decades, the Isley's have been charting regularly since 1959. "That Lady Pt. 1" was a Top 10 (#6) hit on the Billboard Hot 100. And Pt. 2 ain't none-too-bad, either. In fact, it was the guitar/keyboard/percussion-heavy Part 2 that made this one of my all-time favorites. I practically wore out my copy (on 45!) when I was a kid, and, to this day, I've never tired of it. As a rock-oriented slab of R&B, it's a far cry from the Gospel the original lineup performed way back when.

It's one of my all-time favorites. I like it much better now that I don't have to flip the record over to listen to part 2.

I've heard the song many times. The Isley Brothers have been in the music business a long time. Very talented, especially Ronald Isley, the song was written before I was born but it's still a classic.Old school.

I've always been a fan of Ernie's guitar play as well.
