Shout! is the debut album released by The Isley Brothers on the RCA Victor label in 1959. It was produced by Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore.


Released after the success of the title track, the group were rushed into a recording studio to record much of the album, which included another Isley standard, the uncharted "Respectable", which like "Shout", was also covered by rock acts. The album was re-released in 1990 on the Collectables label after the album went out of print in the years since its release. The album was remastered and expanded for inclusion in the 2015 released CD box set The RCA Victor & T-Neck Album Masters, 1959-1983.
