I''d like to echo the sentiments of the first reviewer, it was and is criminal that it took so long for this album to be released again in the U.S. The Isley Brothers had always been a great and classic R&B group since the late 1950''s. Their style of "Soul" had been the envy of many a band and group. They truly had mastered the 3 part harmony and gave music some of it''s most memorable and influential songs such as "It''s Your Thing"; "Twist and Shout"; etc.

But in the 1970''s, they would began a stretch into the early 1980''s that would redefine music and introduce the world to some of the best songwriting it had ever come across. It was at that time that the 3+3 era of the group who would become a band and that of the highest order. I''ve said before that they were a part of the "holy trinity" of R&B in the decade of the 1970''s and they would have a string of #1 albums during that time.

Ernie & Marvin Isley and their brother in law, Chris Jasper, would take over the musical influence of the band and take them to places few have gone before. Ernie Isley''s genius especially started to come to the forefront. He is a multi talented performer who co-wrote the songs with Chris Jasper and Marvin Isley and all 3 helped to establish a whole new chapter for the band. He played lead & rhythm guitar, bass, drums and percussion. He, like Stevie Wonder and Prince, would use his multi instrumentalist talents to create a sound that was distinctly the Isley Brothers.

And not to short change Chris and Marvin whose sound was just as important as Ernie''s. Chris Jasper is an incredibly gifted piano, keyboard player who also could play drums and percussion. Marvin was one of the greatest bass guitar players who doesn''t get the credit he deserves for his sweet, clean and varied bass guitar sounds.

As a group, they brought a whole other side of the "funk" in such a way that they couldn''t be ignored. This album shows a level of maturity that every great band displays in their heyday. The single best example of this, in my opinion, is the jam "Ain''t Giving Up No Love". Sit back, turn up the volume and allow that song to take you to places in the groove you''ve never been!

They band had found their groove and this LP shows they were truly one of the all time greats. This is a band that truly needs to be reevaluated when one talks about the greatest of all time. There was nothing musically they couldn''t do and what they did choose to do they did exceptionally well. This was truly a wonderful time in music and these 6 men were a pivotal reason why.

It''s been 37 years(1978) since I first purchased this album(in cassette form), and I''ll have to say that this is The Isley Brothers'' last quality album of the 1970s. And yes, even though they came out with "Winner Takes All" in 1979, it didn''t have that ''all-thrillers-and-no-fillers'' body of songs like all the rest of the Isley''s albums of the 70s. However, all of the songs on "Showdown" are 100% excellent and make you feel good. Also, I am so glad that this CD was available at amazon.

If you love that wonderful special fusion of traditional rock and progressive funk, then you will love the Isley Brother''s "Showdown" CD. Think of Sly and the Family Stone on steriods - only, Sly and his band of funk/rockers are "late bloomers" commpared to the boys from Teaneck,New Jersey.

A combination of blood brothers, a first cousin and and a brother-in-law, the Isley Brothers never gained the notoriety they truly deserved as a "crossover" band but believe me, black folks are the not only ones who rock out to any of ther several hits songs - dating back to "It''s Your Thang" in the mid -sixties.

The unique rock and funk sound of the Islely Brothers continued to evolve and improve throughout the seventies and well into the early eighties, and "Showdown" features some the the best of the group''s musical transformation.

Many reviewers talk about the highly proclaimed athem, "Take Me to the Next Phase" for it''s funky bass line, drums and synthesizers. But for me, the true jewel of the record is "Showdown" the record''s namesake and first track. As you listen to the perfectly blended mix of keyboards, rythym and lead guitars, you can imagine the outlaws and barmaids in an Old West salon. And of course, the heavy and creative bass lines combined with the just rightly understated drum beat, keep the song moving to it''s climatic, almost joyous, ending. Two other songs, "Rockin with the Fire" and "Love Fever" also demonstrate the band''s ability to take soulful funk and make it appealing to rockers.

If I could only have one Isley Brothers CD (even though there are numerous "greatest hits" CDs of their music) "Showdown" would be the one.

I can say this without any doubt, The ISLEY BROTHERS are the BEST at what they do!, which is providing us with high quality music for decades, and this stunning album again proves just that!!.Full of pure energy, this album will put a spring in your body and mind, you just can''t sit down!, you will have to get up and groove!!.
Weighing 8 songs total, you are getting quality over quantity. We start off with the bouncy yet groovy "showdown", it''s such a nice song!,then we got the all classic "GROOVE WITH YOU", my, my, this awesome piece is a true melter,it is my absolute favourite here!!. "ain''t givin'' up no love" is so sad, so real, so good! can you relate? I bet you can!!."rockin'' with fire" is simply hot, very hot!!,"take me to the next phase" will wake you up, what a groove! a real stimulant! " coolin'' me out" is so unique! it is in a class all by itself.It flows so very well, I realy love this one!. Then we got the lively yet positive "fun and games" , check out the lyrics!. Finaly "love fever" is a high energy event. Perhaps thier funkiest album, designed to make you move, I am almost forcing you to go get this sparkling gem of an album, Isley fan or no, you are going to be enjoying this one for years to come, believe me!!!.

いいアルバムです。
Reviewed in Japan on September 8, 2013
発売当時「take me to the next phase」をFENで聴いて気に入ってアナログを買ってからの愛聴盤。 「coolin'' me out」はじめサンプルされまくってるので、どこかで聴いたフレーズがそこかしこに。 アルバムの構成も考えられてますし、ホーンセクション無しなのにここまでグルーヴィで気持ちいい音を作れるのかっていう。ボーカルは勿論、バックのギターやキーボードが刻むリズムは一品です。リマスタもなかなかよろし。
