Shakin' All Over was originally intended as a back of Yes Sir, that's My Baby, a song from the repertoire of Ricky Nelson. Johnny Kidd wrote Shakin' All Over the day before the shooting and everyone was made the song so well that it was bombed to front. For the recording of the song on 13 May 1960 in the Abbey Road Studios in London was hired an extra guitarist, the session musician Joe Moretti (1938-2012). Moretti made it for the song characteristic ' zeng'-sound by with a lighter between the strings of his guitar on the ferrets to iron out. The plate brought out in August 1960 the first place in the UK Singles Chart.

In 1965 brought Johnny Kidd and the Pirates a new version of the song as Shakin' All Over ' 65. The original version was in 1976, when Kidd ten years was dead, re-released, and again in 1980 and 1983. None of these plates was a hit.
