All their videos can be seen on YouTube and Facebook (and some of them at MySpace) with their friendly permission.
I filmed this video while there were playing it at the Fiestacity in Verviers on 28.08.2010. The original version was cut by The Top Notes in 1961. 1962: The Isley Brothers move to Wand Records, where they team with producer Bert Berns. Blues ballad Right Now is another flop but, for the follow-up, Berns presents his own song Twist And Shout (originally by The Top Notes). July : Twist And Shout tops R&B chart and peaks at US #17, becoming a classic reaching a wider audience through/thru The Beatles version. With the current dance craze, Wand has The Isleys record Twistin' With Linda; it makes US #54. Twist And Shout makes US #61. This video is also featured on their MySpace website.
