"This is a reissue of the Isley Brothers 1962 album "Twist & Shout!" Unlike most albums from that time period, it doesn't include a lot of cover versions of recents hits by other perfomers, other than "Let's Twist Again" (which, bizarrely, is featured in an instrumental version). Unfortunately, the original compostions here are sometimes not very original. "Hold On Baby" and "You Better Come Home" are rewrites of "Twist and Shout" "Spanish Twist" is an instumental version of "Twist and Shout". "Twist and Shout", "Rubberleg Twist", "Twistin' With Linda" and "Nobody But Me" are the only really good songs here. Everything else is pretty forgetable. On the plus side, the remixing job here is excellent. It has very good stereo sound, especially considering the time period it was recorded in."
