Song of the Day: The Isley Brothers, “That Lady (Parts 1 & 2)”

"That Lady (Parts 1 & 2)" was written by Rudolph, Ronald, and O’Kelly Isley and originally recorded in 1964 as "Who’s That Lady?" The 1973 remake of the song included younger brothers Ernie on guitar and Marvin on bass, as well as Chris Jasper on keyboards, who were added to the group around that time. It was on their 1973 album 3 + 3 (so named because there were three older and three younger members of the group). It was their first hit single since "It’s Your Thing" in 1969, reaching #6 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the R&B chart, and also reached #14 in the UK.

  1. Oh my, I haven’t heard this in years. One forgets how many great songs are out there and how only a few are played….and played forgetting other great ones.

    1. They’re still going, at least on the oldies circuit. One of the orginals teamed up with a couple of other singers and got Ernie to play with them. I haven’t heard them in a few years, but I saw them on a special and they still have it.

  2. Hi John – I think I prefer the earlier version – but I guess it’s the one I know … interesting to hear this one though – they had iconic voices. Take care – Hilary
