Name that tune: Brother Brother by The Isley Brothers

You can't go far wrong with any of The Isley Brothers' post-Motown output from 1969-1975 and you'll go no better than their 1972 album Brother Brother Brother.

Brother Brother is one of three Carole King songs on an album otherwise largely comprising Isley-penned material. Musically, the album isn't that far removed from Marvin Gaye's What's Going On; although the 'brother brother' refrain of Marvin's title track is coincidental, it may have struck a chord with some of the million-plus Americans who bought What's Going On the previous year.
