About this item

Here's Little Richard - the debut album that would go on to shape rock n' roll and popular music. The original album plus eight bonus tracks.

Rolling Stone Magazine: "A- wop- bop- a- loo- mop- a- lop- bam- boom!." Ten simple nonsensical words that changed the face of music forever. "The Innovator, The Originator, and The Architect of Rock and Roll," a more perfect title couldn't have been bestowed on Little Richard. Those words taken from Little Richard's first hit single, Tutti Frutti, which was released in 1955; before Chuck Berry released 'Roll Over Beethoven,' before Jerry Lee Lewis released 'Great Balls Of Fire' and even before Elvis released 'Blue Suede Shoes' (coincidentally 'Tutti Frutti' was its BSide). .

While 'Tutti Frutti' might be the star of Little Richard's debut record, the album is filled with Rock 'n Roll songs that would go on to shape popular music. True, Fine Mama, Ready Teddy, Slippin' And Slidin (Peepin' And Hidin'), and, of course, Long Tall Sally." - Brett Schewitz (review extract)

"Little Richard was the biggest inspiration of my early teens." - Mick Jagger

"Without Little Richard, myself and half of my contemporaries wouldn't be playing music." - David Bowie
