“A Wonderful Time”  The Whelchel Family    There are so many of these local Christian music records in dollar bins around the country, but some covers rise above and scratch one’s aesthetic itch to please on a higher level.  This one is rich in its simplicity and earnestness.  Also the fashion and hair and girth.

The baddest band in the land

Here are five classic, must-have, Isley Brothers albums from the 1970’s.   (From the top) Harvest for the World (1976 ) Including “Harvest for the World,” “People of Today,” and “Who Loves You Better” (and that’s just Side One);  3+3  (1973 ) Including “That Lady Parts 1 and 2,” “What It Comes Down To,” “You Walk Your Way” and “Summer Breeze”The Heat Is On (1975) Including “Fight the Power Parts 1 and 2,” and “For the Love of You Parts 1 and 2″Showdown (1978 ) Including “Take Me to the Next Phase Parts 1 and 2,” and “Groove With You” and Live It Up (1974) Including “Hello It’s Me,”, “Live It Up” and “Midnight Sky” on T-Neck Records/Epic.   The Isley Brothers:  Ernie, Ronald, Rudolph, O’Kelly and Marvin Isley with brother-in-law Chris Jasper produced one of the greatest soul sounds of all time — a distinctive blend of soul and funk and rock led by Ernie’s guitar and Ronald’s vocals.  These recordings can make you dance, break your heart or just thank god for their deep soulful emotion and joy.  And check out those outfits!
