It was the late 1950's in Cincinnati Ohio when the Isley brothers - Ronald, Rudolph and O'Kelly Jr. - formed to perform gospel music. By the time the brothers had moved to New York in 1957 they had recruited a fourth brother - Vernon - and lost brother O'Kelly, who had died. The Isley Brothers were playing clubs in New York City when success of their fourth single Shout landed them a first album deal. The song was the first original composition recorded by the brothers. The song was born out of a Washington DC club, where after the brothers had performed a cover of the 1958 Jackie Wilson song Lonely Teardrops, the call-and-response style Shout followed as a response. The song has since been covered countless dozens of times, and it continues to be featured prominently music & movies.
