Soul Serenade: The Isley Brothers, "Work To Do"


This week’s Soul Serenade column for Popdose features the Isley Brothers with their 1972 hit “Work To Do”:

Marvin Isley died on June 6. He was the youngest of the Isley Brothers, and together with his older brother Ernie Isley and brother-in-law Chris Jasper formed the instrumental force that was fused to the Isleys’ original vocal trio in 1973.
