Nice Album with Classic Tracks - But Not The Original Twist & Shout
, 11 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Twist And Shout: The Bert Berns Story, Volume 1: 1960-1964 (Audio CD)
No doubting that Bert Berns was involved with some great music. But The Isley's version of Twist & Shout - on which the Beatles based their version - wasn't the original.
That was recorded by the Top Notes in 1961 and the arrangement is quite different to the Isley's version which is much better, in my opinion.
