This Old Heart of Mine (The Isley Brothers)

23 APRIL 1966

The Isley Brothers’ excellent single ‘This Old Heart of Mine’ was at its peak position of #12 on the US Billboard charts. It reached #3 in the UK, which often had a stronger market for R&B. They had previously scored medium-sized hits in the US with the classics 'Shout' (1959) and 'Twist and Shout' (1962), so this was something of a comeback for the band who would go on to have hits right through the 1970s and beyond. They had a total of nineteen Top Ten singles on the US R&B charts, including seven #1s.

The Isley's were brothers O'Kelley, Rudolph and Ronald, and hailed from Cincinnati, Ohio.
