In an interview with Ernie Isley on The Isley Brothers: Summer Breeze Greatest Hits Live
DVD, he says that this song was originally done as a Cha-Cha/Bossa Nova in 1964 titled "Who's That Lady
." Ernie originally did not want to re-record it because he felt that it already had been done. Ronald Isley convinced him it would be worthwhile, as they were going to change the melody, tempo, and lyrics and that it would showcase the guitar work of younger brother Ernie, who had become an excellent player. The 1964 recording, which features a horn section, was renamed "That Lady" and is featured on the album 3+3
. This version is the more widely-known recording of the song.
