Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Isley Brothers – This Old Heart Of Mine (1966)

467 – Isley Brothers – This Old Heart Of MIne (Is Weak For You) (1966)
Written by Holland/Dozier/Holland, Sylvia Moy
Produced by Brian Holand and Lamont Dozier
Label – Tamla Motown

Sadly The Isley Brothers never had the pick of the best material during their tenure with Motown. Even this magnificent single was intended for The Supremes, but with Ronald Isley’s convincing and heartfelt Tenor and a beautiful arrangement this remains their greatest artistic achievement on Berry Gordy’s label.
