...a big fat blunder!

Everything is just about perfect; two great albums on one great sounding Mobile Fidelity disc, but there's one oversight, the titles listed on the tray card are misprinted. The way it looks is, the "Here's Little Richard" album only has 11 songs. Oops, WRONG!!! Thus, screwing up the remainder of the running order.

Here's what it looks like...

HERE'S LITTLE RICHARD (1957)
1. Tutti Frutti
2. True, Fine Mama
3. Can't Believe You Wanna' Leave
4. Ready Teddy
5. Baby
6. Slippin' and Slidin'
7. Long Tall Sally
8. Miss Ann
9. Oh Why?
10. Rip It Up
11. Jenny Jenny

LITTLE RICHARD (1958)
12. She's Got It
13. Keep a Knockin'
14. By the Light of the Silvery Moon
15. Send Me Some Lovin'
16. I'll Never Let You Go
17. Heeby-Jebbies (Heebie Jeebies)
18. All Around the World
19. Good Golly, Miss Molly
20. Baby Face
21. Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey
22. Ooh! My Soul
23. The Girl Can't Help It

That's a major oversight, a big fat blunder!

there is a tape stretch in the beginning of the first sax solo on "you keep a-knockin'". i contacted mobile fidelity and they said that the stretch happened during a playback in the late 50's. i know pitch correction is possible because it was used to success on the time-life rock and roll era release in the late 80's. mo-fi purposefully left the stretch. i'm not sure i agree with this. yes it's keeping it original but how disappointing to here the pitch drop in the middle of such a great song. i guess some people are so uptight that they would sacrifice quality for exactness but i thimk i would prefer pitch correction. so if this will bother you, you might check out some other compilations. i'm not sure how they delt with it on other releases. i would also be curious to know if the stretch had occurred by the time they made the original album and if they left it the way it was. if so, i understand mobile fidelity's decision.

other than the tape stretch, this is a great cd and the sound is excellent. it's nice to see some care given to some great old recordings that seem to go unnoticed these days. thanx mo-fi!

As for the tape drag in "Keep a Knockin'", that was the way the original 45 was released. I have a couple of compilations that have the version that's corrected but it just doesn't sound right to me without the tape drag so I'm glad that's the version on this disc. That said, the sound quality of this Mobile Fidelity disc is amazing. I never realized how much reverb was used on all other Little Richard compilations. This version has Richard's voice right in your face and you've never heard these classic songs sound this real and vital.

contains all of Mr. Penniman's hits in outstanding sound, the vocals are upfront in the mix, dry-sounding without the excessive reverb traditionally employed during the time these songs were recorded.. a must-own for a serious rock and roll collection..
