Isis - Isis (1974)

This is an obscure gem. A pastiche of musical influences that defies categorization, which is probably the reason it was not a big seller.
Its got funk, r.& b. sensibilities, with tower of power horns but it is the sum of its parts that fascinates. ISIS is a crazed joyous prog-folk-soul hybrid. Fans of Jethro Tull, Spirit and Curtis Mayfield would certainly like this. A great collage of sounds, powerful vocals, and dynamic guitar runs. This is an all woman group. An all SILVER woman group to be precise. by phnuggle

Hi Lisa, thanks for this, I have the vinyl, which I haven't dug out in years now, so I will rekindle a memory for sure. :-)
