(Germany - Import)
EU collection from the Rock 'n' Roll icon. Little Richard is one of the great innovators, a true auteur whose enduring series of smash hits on the Specialty label influenced the Western world's most popular artists including Elvis, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Otis Redding, Prince and the Beatles. 'Tutti Frutti', 'Long Tall Sally', 'Lucille', 'Jenny Jenny', 'Good Golly Miss Molly', 'Baby Face': these are the records that made the difference between R&B and primal Rock 'n' Roll and they're all here. There's also a clutch of non-Specialty tracks of genuine worth including the jump blues, 'Get Rich Quick' from 1951, the semi-secret 'I'm in Love Again', issued under the name of the World Famous Upsetters in 1962, and 'Get Down with It', a rip-roaring rocker recorded in England in 1966. These add further dimension to a collection of paint-stripping intensity that no one has ever topped. Bear Family. 2011.
