Released: June 1962

Written by Phil Medley and Bert Berns – later to produce Van Morrison's early solo recordings – 'Twist And Shout' would of course become best known for The Beatles' moptop-shaking version. Here The Isley Brothers continue their own shouting theme (after 1959's 'Shout'), taking The Top Notes' 'Shake It Up, Baby' and giving it some welly, eventually climbing into the US Top 20.
