However, The Isley Brothers were truly unique as was Earth, Wind and Fire to have more than one person who could play a variety of instruments on an album. The lyrical content of that song in particular touches every part of society and is the perfect canvas for their outstanding vocals and musicianship. The album is full of their vocal 3 part harmonies with Ronald Isley's trademark smooth soul lead vocals which by itself is worth the price of admission.
This album is a wonderful overall display of their talents and shows how the band had truly come to define what "self contained" truly meant. There is a reason that they enjoyed such a long and illustrious career spanning from the late 's up unto this day.
The Isley Brothers were truly one of a kind and their longevity, creativity and flexibility are true testaments to drive, talent and determination. This album is one of the clearest portraits of what made them great as a band, singers, songwriters, arrangers, producers and record executives. They seemed to be at the forefront of every major shift in music from the late 's on.
Their truly will never be another band quite like them. Under my "old" Amazon. For many of the truest lovers of soul and funk out there it's hard to deny that as far as funk was concerned was a big landmark year. Everything in the kitchen sink musically had entered successfully into the mix and it was producing not only huge commercial and critical results,but was influencing every jazz and rock musician who was hearing it.
This album could not be anymore of a product of Ricky Vincent's "united funk" era than you could possibly ask for. The main difference between this and other items in the Isley's catalog from this time is that there's more of a gentle overtone to lot of this music,even the funky stuff doesn't throw itself at you and tends to be more penetrating than forceful.
The title track really has to merrit a lot of discussion. Musically this song is probably one of the greatest examples of two generations of music they ever did,and that isn't a huge surprise since the group features two generations of brothers.
Not that it gets hardly any credit of course but it really is. The two slow songs on the album "Let Me Down Easy" and " At Your Best You Are Love" are strangely enough good enough songs but not among the stronger of the Isley's ballads at this point compositionally;kind of by-the-numbers by most standards.
Much more interesting is "So You Wanna Stay Down",with a similar feeling to the title track and some rapid fire vocal turns from Ron. Now, for me to write a review about one of my favorite groups album, would be subject to quite a bit of bias.
However, that being said, this CD is a genius. Ronald Isley 's aggressive delivery blends nicely with Ernie Isley 's tantalizing guitar solos. The title track is a tour de force. Preceded by a mellow intro in which Ronald Isley 's earnest plea rings with urgency, the timeless lyric and festive rhythm make "Harvest for the World" a welcomed anthem for all the people of the world. Ronald Isley changes his tone on some of these compositions by adding a roughness to his still smooth tenor, like on the relentless jams "People of Today" and "You Wanna Stay Down.
But when the younger brothers came into the lineup in the 70s, we had our first No 1 album with The Heat Is On. We were on a roll. I played drums as well as guitar on Harvest.Unreleased Long Version Edited by Steve Williams.
