Album Review

Released in 1994 as Beautiful Ballads — give Legacy some credit for conveniently mentioning the fact on the back of the disc, unlike similar compilation repackagings that have hit the market throughout the years — From the Heart contains 70 minutes of the Isley Brothers' slow and romantic singles released between 1971 and 1983, adding Isley/Jasper/Isley's number one 1985 R&B hit, "Caravan of Love." Most of what is here is undeniably classic, but no ballad-centric Isleys disc is complete without "Between the Sheets" or "Sensuality" — two omissions that would be justifiable deal breakers. The favoring of lesser material, like "You're the Key to My Heart" and their cover of Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me" (neither one of which charted), is pretty puzzling.
