"Though best known for his classic sides on the Specialty label, RCA and Peacock were the first pit stops for the real king of rock 'n' roll. For those labels Richard Wayne Penniman recorded 16 tunes. The first thing one can see clearly here, is that Little Richard, before Esquerita, was a good R&B artist still looking for his unique voice. The bands on these sides were Johnny Otis and the Deuces of Rhythm along with the Tempo Toppers. Documented here are the Peacock/RCA years along with some alternate takes, another essential piece of R&B and rock 'n' roll history, delivered by Mr. Suit."
