The Studio 86 Sessions, Volume 25

St. Johns Youth: Twist and Shout

Could St. Johns Youth be from the St. John’s School, a boys-only boarding school in Stony Plain, Alberta (now closed)? And just what is this toilet that the song is dedicated to? So many mysteries.

The Beatles recorded the song in 1964, but it was a cover – it had already been recorded by the Top Notes (1961) and The Isley Brothers (1962).

This brings The Studio 86 Sessions to an end. Hope you’ve enjoyed it. Check back on Friday for the start of a new “found sound” series.
