SHOUT

Latest update on 23/03/2019

Artist: Isley Brothers
Author: O'Kelly Isley/Ronald Isley/Rudolph Isley
Label: RCA
Year: 1959

Inspired by their own public's reaction while singing Jackie Wilson's Lonely Teardrops, the Isleys exclaimed: "You know you make me wanna shout", triggering even more reactions. Building Up To Shout, the live opening track of their recommended box set It's Your Thing, further illustrates this song's genesis. Followed up with Twist And Shout, also covered by The Beatles (see there).
