2008 reissue of the debut full-length album from the Rock 'N' Roll legend, originally released in 1957. Little Richard scored six Top 40 US hits in 1956, a time when Rock 'N' Roll was seen almost entirely as a singles propelled musical movement. This success prompted Specialty Records, who had Little Richard under exclusive license, to gather together the best of the singles and build an album around them. The result was Here's Little Richard, released in July '57. Even now, more than fifty years later and after a career spanning five decades, Here's Little Richard remains his most important and vital album. Indeed, it is still the best selling album of his career, reaching number thirteen on the Billboard charts when originally released. There again, any album that contains such groundbreaking tracks as 'Tutti Frutti', 'Long Tall Sally' and 'Rip It Up' would expect to perform well. Hallmark.

Unlikely as it is, if Penniman (his last name) is new to you put this disc or LP on and time yourself to the moment you can no longer sit still. It won't be long since it kicks off with Tutti Frutti and hallway through doubles you up with Slipin' & Slidin' followed by Long Tall Sally. Rock & Roll does not rock any better than Specialty era Little Richard.
