The Brothers: Isley is the seventh album released by The Isley Brothers on their own T-Neck label on August 14, 1969. After years with other labels and fresh off the success of the It's Our Thing album, which included the hit title track, "It's Your Thing", the Isley Brothers celebrated their newfound independence by releasing another new album that year with this LP. The album yielded the Billboard Top 40 pop hit, "I Turned You On" and subsequent charters, "Was It Good to You?" and "Black Berries". It was also their second full venture into funk music, a genre they would dominate in the coming years.
