In 1977, The Isley Brothers released their fifteenth album - Go For Your Guns. The album hit the top of the Billboard Soul Chart a month after it was released. The album marked the period that Ron Isley made a transition into singing the soul ballads the band would later be well-known for. Footsteps In The Dark is a classic example of the lead singers new found style, however it was not one of the several singles released from the album. The song would later become one of their greatest hits after being sampled in and popularized by Ice Cube's 1993 hit It Was A Good Day. The song was sampled the previous year in Compton's Most Wanted's Can I Kill It, and in the following years it has been continuously sampled - several dozen times.
