Subtitled: The Pre-Specialty Sessions 1951-1953. The legend wants it that when Little Richard was working as a dishwasher in a restaurant, he used to sing and shout in the same irrepressible way that would make him famous a few years later, when his concerts were being televised all around the world. This set finally corroborates such a legend. The Implosive Little Richard illustrates the reconstruction process of the wildest and freest identity in rock and roll history. Here are all of Richard's first recordings from the early '50s with the Johnny Otis and Billy Wright bands, the Deuces of Rhythm and the Tempo Toppers. All his pre-Specialty, pre-"Tutti Frutti" waxings, including his four RCA singles and all the 45s he recorded for Peacock Records. Housed in a gatefold sleeve with extensive liners, label shots, dozens of pictures, vintage press clippings and reviews.
