Super Young 1959 Beatles Play “Shout”– And EVERYBODY Is Dancing!!
A Little Bit Louder Now!
“Shout” was originally released on September 21, 1959 by the American musical group The Isley Brothers. It may not have made it to the top 40 of the US Billboard Hot 100 but this has become a much-covered tune and even became a gold single.
Released in 1959, it was written by the brothers themselves as a call and response answer to Jackie Wilson’s “Lonely Teardrops”, which they would occasionally cover in live performances.
On their compilation album, “Anthology 1”, The Beatles added a live version of this track. This performance featured the band at their most dynamic. Add in the sound of screaming fans and you can really tell how much energy there is in the studio.
Although the group hadn’t performed it live since signing to EMI, they assuredly romped through the song, allowing each Beatle to have a moment under the vocal spotlight.
Can’t help but dance along!
