KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are back in Hitsville USA, 2648 W.Grand Blvd, Detroit, in 1966 for The Isley Bros' "Behind A Painted Smile", first released on their "Soul on The Rocks" LP in January 1967 by Motown...
"The Isley Brothers (on this one, O'Kelly Jnr, Rudolph and Ronald) originally hail from Cincinnati, Ohio and started out as a vocal trio in the 1950s. Their stay at Motown only lasted for two albums and a handful of singles and in view of the success they had after leaving, it was for them the right thing to do.
This one became a UK Top 5 hit in 1969, after The Isleys had already left Motown and was included on my much treasured UK version of "Motown Chartbusters Vol.3" (the sound of my Xmas of 1969)." KV
