Caravan of Love is the second album by Isley-Jasper-Isley, released in 1985. According to Marc Taylor, "the trio made a conscious effort to add more of a soulful flavor to their 1985 follow-up album". Taylor calls the title track "a beautiful, melodic, and lyrically powerful gem".[1] The song topped the US R&B chart for three weeks. The second single, "Insatiable Woman", is a "sweet, mid-tempo love song" that was dedicated to Jasper's wife.[1] It peaked at number 13 on the R&B chart in early 1986. The album itself reached number three on the R&B albums chart.[1]
