RECORDED ON THIS DAY IN 1959

The song "Shout" was written and sung by The Isley brothers
themselves as a call and response answer to Jackie Wilson‘s
"
Lonely Teardrops", which they would occasionally cover in
live performances. While the song did not reach higher than
#47 on the Billboard Hot 100
, it became their first gold single
on the basis of its longevity and became a much-covered
tune, with many U.S. and international artists recording the
song.
