We gave it an A

From the raw 1959 breakthrough hit ”Shout” to love jams like ”Between the Sheets,” this three-CD set represents the Isleys’ evolution from rock sensations to soul troubadours. Jimi Hendrix can be heard striking his acoustic lightning on 1965’s ”Move Over” and ”Let Me Dance.” It’s Your Thing is a brilliantly arranged collection, including exceptional alternate takes and unreleased tracks, and a necessity for anyone yearning to do their own thing.
