'Givin' It Back' is the 9th album released by The Isley Brothers on the T-Neck imprint in 1971.
After years of having Rock acts covering most of their famed material, particulary "Shout" and "Twist and Shout", The Isley Brothers decided to do the same to music made famous by artists such as Stephen Stills, Eric Burdon and Neil Young. Among the songs the covered were "Spill The Wine", "Love The One You're With", the social commentary medley of "Ohio" and "Machine Gun" (from Jimi Hendrix), "Fire and Rain" by James Taylor and Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay". The Isley Brothers perserverance paid off when their covers of "Love The One You're With", '"Lay Lady Lay" and "Spill The Wine" became charted hits. Bill Withers plays guitar on The Isley's version of his "Cold Bologna".
