Aug 15, 2001 - The Isley Brothers, "Eternal", hits The Billboard 200 at a commanding No. 3 this week. Isley Brothers also debut at Number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums

"WE JUST SAID, 'GIVE US YOUR BEST. LET'S BLOW EVERYONE'S MINDS!' " relates bona fide pop legend Ron Isley of the roster assembled for the Isley Brothers' new album, "Eternal" (due Aug 7, 2001, from DreamWorks Records). "We're at a point in our career where I feel we're doing our very best work. We try to outdo ourselves with each record, but this time, we're really out for blood. It's like the Isley Brothers Super Bowl."

In addition to the compositions written by Ron and Ernie Isley, "Eternal" boasts an impressive roster of guest producers, writers and performers: R. Kelly, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Lucy Pearl/former Tony! Toni! Tone! vocalist Raphael Saadiq and hot newcomer Steve Huff. Keeping it in the family, Isley's wife, Angela Winbush, has lent her songwriting, production and vocal skills as well.

"We chose these collaborators because we admire them enormously, and they already have a firm grasp of the Isley Brothers flavor," Isley continues. "We've got a lot of faith in these folks. In the case of Jimmy and Terry, I'd always wondered what it would be like to work with them. We'd talked about it over the years and knew it'd be great to do an album together, but the timing and the inspiration had to be there at the same time. It finally happened with this record."

Isley is quick to mention brother Ernie's involvement as well. "He'll definitely have a lot of guitar solos; every time Ernie has solos, like on 'Who's That Lady' or 'Summer Breeze,' they turn out to be hits!" Recorded in Minneapolis, Chicago and Los Angeles, the new Isley's offering will also unveil a reinterpretation of the Chicago classic "If You Leave Me Now," which Isley considers "a masterpiece." - www.soultrain.com

 


SOUL TRAIN MUSIC AWARDS

March 1, 2001 - After nearly four decades and more than 40 hit records with the Isley Brothers, Ronald Isley was presented with the Quincy Jones Award for outstanding career achievement, Soul Train's version of a lifetime achievement award. The legendary artist thanked the forces in his life -- "God, my family" that "kept me doin' this."

"The best compliment you can give the Lord at a time like this is Hallelujah!" he added. "This means so much to me and my family. It's because of you fans. It's because of you fans. It's because of you fans. It's because of you fans. [yes, he said this four times in a row] I am looking forward to some of the best music we've made in our lives this year." Keeping with the tradition of old artists turned hip artists, Isley said he will be working with a stable of undisclosed young hitmakers to mix a new formula for success. - Heather Wood (CDNOW.com)

 

MICHAEL BOLTON APPEAL

Jan. 23, 2001 - Michael Bolton has been forced to eat crow yet again. Bolton lost his bid to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a $5.4 million jury verdict that his song "Love Is A Wonderful Thing," copied parts of the 1961 Isley Brothers song of the same name. The high court, without any comment or argument, rejected an appeal by Bolton, co-writer Andrew Goldmark, and their record companies challenging the largest reported music infringement judgment involving a single song. - Lee Bailey's EUR Web

 

NEW ALBUM

Dec. 26, 2000 - There'll be nothing but smooth sailing, maybe not tonight, but soon. R. Kelly, Raphael Saadiq, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis will be laying down tracks for the first Isley Brothers album in four years. Though the disc has not yet been titled, the project is called "The Isley Brothers Featuring Ronald Isley a.k.a. Mr. Biggs," according to a statement from Dreamworks Records. The album, which will be recorded in Minneapolis, Chicago and Los Angeles, will feature a cover of Chicago's ballad "If You Leave Me Now." Ronald Isley's wife, singer Angela Winbush, also contributed songs to the project. - Lee Bailey's EUR Web
