Little Richard - Here's Little Richard

It doesn't get any more rock & roll than this. This album (released in 1957) was ranked number 50 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Richard Penniman already had six hits on the charts, starting with the cataclysmic "Tutti Frutti," before his label decided to gather them up on a long player. The results are glorious anarchy, let loose by a crack team of New Orleans musicians with the most distinctive, most outrageous voice of them all leading the charge.

Here's Little Richard is twenty-eight minutes of gleeful mayhem. From Paul McCartney to Prince to Axl Rose, the legacy of Little Richard has never waned, no matter how many insurance ads he does.

1. Tutti Frutti (2:25), 2. True Fine Mama (2:43), 3. Can't Believe You Wanna Leave (2:28), 4. Ready Teddy (2:09), 5. Baby (2:06), 6. Slippin' and Slidin' (2:42), 7. Long Tall Sally (2:10), 8. Miss Ann (2:17), 9. Oh Why? (2:09), 10. Rip It Up (2:23), 11. Jenny, Jenny (2:04), 12. She's Got It (2:26)
