The Isley Brothers recorded the original SHOUT this day in 1959. Released on the RCA Victor record label, this song was unusually long for the time period. Most songs of the era were slightly over two minutes in length, but this song fill with sheer jubilation timed out at over four minutes. The original 45 rpm version of the record splits the song in two - "Shout Part 1" and "Shout Part 2." Part 1 ends with the words "Now wait a minute." The song later became a hit again for Joey Dee and the Starlighters, and because  of Animal House, for Otis Day and the Knights. Enjoy it again by clicking below. For many years, the Isley Brothers lived together in a mansion on a high hill in the Demarest/Cresskill/Dumont area of New Jersey.
