The Essential Little Richard

The Essential Little Richard by Little Richard
Released: Jul 2006
Label: Fantasy Records
Among the architects of rock and roll, Little Richard seems to get the least respect. He's best known for "Tutti Frutti" and that's about it, as if he were a one trick pony. But you can hear echoes of James Brown in "Rip It Up," heavy metal in "Keep A-Knockin'" (well, almost) and the primal energy that informed Iggy in Richard's over the top shrieks and howls.
