The song was first recorded in a different format back in 1964 by the original line up of Rudolph,Ronald and O’kelly Isley.
By 1973 the band had expanded to six with the inclusion of brothers Ernie and Marvin and brother in law Chris Jasper.
Ernie Isley had become an accomplished guitarist,inspired by Jimi Hendrix and along with Jasper who re-wrote the original instrumental for this song it was transformed.
