Album Review

Classic Isley Brothers: The Universal Masters Collection is an 18-track disc released in Europe that looks almost exactly like Early Classics — a disc that was released around the same time in 2000. In fact, the two releases contain the same selection of songs, but the sequencing is slightly different between the two. Regardless, this is an adequate compilation of the Isley Brothers' Motown stint, including their lone hit from it — "This Old Heart of Mine" — along with several other Holland-Dozier-Holland songs "("Stop!

It's misleading; most of the contents aren't classic at all.
