Format: Audio CD
The Isley Bothers have a long history, beginning with Shout, which didn't chart for them in the UK but it is the song that later launched Lulu's career in Britain. In the sixties, they recorded some notable songs, notably Twist and shout (later covered by the Beatles and by Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, who had a UK top ten hit with it) The Isley Brothers' version was a minor UK hit but isn't included here - it is one of only two UK hits omitted from this collection.
The brothers achieved their first significant UK hits after they switched to Motown. This old heart of mine, I guess I'll always love you and Behind a painted smile all became huge UK hits for them - two of them making the top five and the other stalling just outside the top ten. A fourth Motown single (Put yourself in my place) made the UK top twenty after they left Motown but isn't included here.
Despite their success, they never really liked recording for Motown so they quit and had hits on their own label with a different style partly inspired by James Brown. The most notable of these hits was It's your thing. By this time, the three brothers of the original group had become five brothers and a cousin (whose surname was Jasper, not Isley) and it was with this line-up that the group had its most successful period in America after they came to a licensing agreement with a major label.
They scored several top twenty hits in Britain but only (just) made the top ten once in the seventies, failing to scale the chart heights of their earlier Motown hits - they have nevertheless become classics. Indeed, Summer breeze (one of the best summer songs ever) and Harvest for the world may be better known in Britain than those Motown hits.

When artists have been releasing successful songs for several decades, as the Isley Brothers have, then condensing their best work into a single disc is an onerous task, and one which usually results in thousands of unhappy fans fuming at the glaring omissions.

But that is not the case here: the compilers of Summer Breeze have done an excellent job and most of the essential recordings from every period of their career are here (although personally I would have liked Twist & Shout and Put Yourself in My Place from their early years to have been included).

This is feel-good music of the highest order: many of the tracks will be instantly familiar to most people, and they'll bring a smile to your face, lift your spirits and have you singing along in no time.

For people who want a more comprehensive overview of their career, I would recommend the 3-CD Ultimate Collection and also Early Classics... but if you're only going to have one Isley Brothers CD in your collection, you really should make it Summer Breeze because it is by far the best of the single disc collections available.

Format: Audio CD
i was surprised this album hasn't been reviewed, so i thought id give it a bash..
but where do i start...first off i am 17 and don't have much experience of motown however i decided to pick this album up purely off the back of the summer breeze track. and i think this album is superb full of lovely beats and harmonies. love all of the songs some of which stand out more than others.
This is a must have album and can be listened to anywhere, i listen to it in my car, to cruise to, in my room when im chilling and on the go with my ipod, somethin to sing to.
pick it up.. 5 stars

Some groups have greatest hits albums based on one song, this is truly great. Fantastic tunes, harmonies and lyrics. So much a reflection of the 60's & 70's but timeless in their excellence. Buy it, listen to it and think how it compares to what is manufactured today.

Loved this CD. All the hits and quite a few covers but I still liked every track. Good value for money, have seen this on other websites for more. Definitely recommend

Wish I had ordered this sooner, what a time wharp I've been in! Took some time to come but then that was expected as it was shipped over but well worth the wait.
