Johnny O'Keefe was always unhappy with his first version of the song "Shout", which charted in 1959, so when the opportunity came to re-record it he chose to do it with the Rajahs.
In 1964, after numerous recording attempts, the new version of "Shout" was unleashed on the buying public. It was better produced but the new ending was badly edited and lacklustre. Lulu's version was also doing the rounds at that stage, so it was not surprising the new version of "Shout" did not do the same business the original. It hit the top 40 in three states: #18 Sydney, #35 Brisbane and #22 Adelaide.
On the CD (cover shown above), "Shout" is credited as parts one and two but it not labelled correctly. It is not the full version of this song, it is only part one with an edited piece from part two.
