Reseña de álbum

The Very Best of Little Richard is the first high-profile, high-quality Little Richard compilation to be released in the U.S. since 1991's The Georgia Peach, a disc that held the title of best available Little Richard hits collection for roughly 17 years. The Very Best is designed as a replacement to that collection, partially because The Georgia Peach was a little old but also because Concord Music Group — the label that formed in 2004 when Concord and Fantasy Records merged — now owned the Specialty Records vault and could use their own new Little Richard collection. So, Concord Music Group revived the Specialty imprint and released this excellent hits collection, which at 25 tracks is just as long as The Georgia Peach. Fully 20 of those 25 tracks are shared between the two compilations, which should come as no surprise as these 20 tracks are the big hits and standards, ranging from "Tutti Frutti," "Long Tall Sally," and "Good Golly Miss Molly" to "Ooh! My Soul," "Bama Lama Bama Loo," and the medley of "Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey Hey" that the Beatles later covered.

One of the original rock & roll greats, Little Richard merged the fire of gospel with New Orleans R&B, pounding the piano and wailing with gleeful abandon. While numerous other R&B greats of the early '50s had been moving in a similar direction, none of them matched the sheer electricity of Richard's vocals. With his bullet-speed deliveries, ecstatic trills, and the overjoyed force of personality in his singing, he was crucial in upping the voltage from high-powered R&B into the similar,...
