From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
Recorded by Larry Williams in August 1958 as the
B-side of his single “Bad Boy.” It was written by Sonny Bono and Roddy
Jackson. Bono, who had started his career as a songwriter at Specialty
Records before joining Phil Spector’s team, is best known as half of the
Sonny and Cher duo, of “I Got You Babe” and “The Beat Goes On” fame,
formed in 1964. Roddy Jackson was a rockabilly singer and songwriter who
signed with Specialty at Sonny Bono’s instigation. It may not have achieved
success in the US charts, but “She Said ‘Yeah’” made a mark on British
groups of the early sixties, as did various other Larry Williams numbers.
The Rolling Stones recorded the song on either September 5 or 6, 1965.
Based on the song’s communicative energy, it is tempting to consider the
Stones’ version of “She Said ‘Yeah’” as one of the first ever examples of
hard or even punk rock (a dozen or so years before the term was coined).
