4.50 11

A landmark album of hard-rocking soul – and a record that broke open both genres for a generations to come! The set's about as classic as you can get for Little Richard – filled with killer numbers that jump around boldly in some heavy New Orleans piano-led grooves – all topped by Richard's raw, raspy, utterly amazing vocals! And sure, you may know some cuts here from oldies radio, but together they really have a heck of a lot of power – and stand as a testament to the fresh genius that Little Richard represented at this early point – a sound that hundreds would try to copy, but nobody could ever hope to match. Titles include "Tutti Frutti", "Rip It Up", "True, Fine Mama", "Long Tall Sally", "She's Got It", "Oh Why", "Baby", and "Slippin' & Slidin". Great new CD reissue – with bonus demo versions of "Baby" and "All Night Long", and an interview with Art Rupe – plus bonus videos of "Tutti Frutti" and "Long Tall Sally", both screen tests! (Nice fold-out poster, too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
