Editorial Reviews

Three years after the Shout album, The Isley Brothers returned for something along much the same lines, Twist & Shout. An attempt to fuse their shout success with Chubby Checkers twist, it could have ended in tears, yet Twist And Shout would go on to become one of the great dance records of the early 1960s. How much of this is down to The Beatles, who later covered the song and included it in their live repertoire is a matter of conjecture, but The Isley Brothers certainly got to enjoy the fruits of success themselves, with the single hitting #17 in the US (and only just stopped short of topping the R&B chart at #2) and becoming their UK chart debut, hitting #42. All the more interesting is the fact that Twist And Shout had originally been recorded by The Top Notes on a session produced by Phil Spector, but songwriter Bert Russell felt Spector had ruined the song and so set out to record a definitive version The Isley Brothers were the recipients of that decision. Whilst the resulting album extends the Twist And Shout theme for all it was worth, the single still has enough to move a dancefloor fifty years later.
