This contains 22 good reasons to buy. Every track shows just how much like a musical perpetual motion machine Little Richard was-it's one long humdinger of an album, ballads, rockers, blues shouters and all. You won't need a fertile imagination to see him performing these tracks in your living room!
Standouts, beside the bit hits-try Can't Believe You Wanna Leave, Miss Ann, I'll Never Let You Go, Slippin & Slidin and True Fine Mama-all "just" B-sides or album tracks in their day-there have been few people since able to match that standard of pen(or penni) man-ship!
Best of all, folks, these are ALL the original Speciality recordings from 1955-58. what more would you like?

Format: Audio CD
Young people, when listening to early rock'n'roll records by such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, often wonder what all the fuss was about. Of course, they were revolutionary compared to what went before, but they were tame compared to Little Richard. Listen to this collection of hard driving rock'n'roll (or even just a couple of tracks) and you'll understand what I mean.
Many of Little Richard's classic songs have been covered by a variety of different artists in the years since. It will surprise many people to learn that Pat Boone was very quick to cover Little Richard's songs when both were just getting started. Pat's versions of Tutti fruity and Long tall Sally were not wild like Richard's, but nevertheless became big American hits for Pat, who later focused on ballads so most people forgot about his rock'n'roll songs.
Apart from Tutti fruit and Long tall Sally, Little Richard recorded other great songs such as Lucille (an international hit for the Everly Brothers in the sixties), Rip it up, Jenny Jenny, The girl can't help it, Good golly Miss Molly (a sixties UK hit for the Swinging blue jeans) and many other hard rocking songs.
In the UK, Little Richard had five top ten hits, another hit that just missed the top ten and several lesser hits, but his biggest UK hit (number two) was with a cover of Baby face, a song that was already over forty years old when Little Richard recorded it.
This collection contains all of the wild man's classics from the fifties, plus Bama lama bama loo, his 1964 comeback hit.

Guess what-its actually 22 classic cuts, for a start!! This release charts the moment Little Richard changed music history, early in 1955, when a break in a turgid recording session suddenly produced Tutti Frutti. For the next 2 years, one monster track after another came out & pretty well the whole kit n' kaboodle from his early singles and first two albums is within the track listing-the only absentees "I'm Just A lonely Guy"-first US b-side, All Around the World, early US B-side & on the 2nd album and "Oh Why" & "Baby" from the first album.
These are, then, pretty well all the original Speciality recordings, dripping with freshness and zest nearly half a darn century on! The choice of tracks and the running order simply pile one goodie on top of another and give you the overall effect of a musical perpetual motion machine-if you're familiar with the film "The Girl Can't Help It", you'll know what he was like on stage & none of the flamboyance and rockin' feel from there is ever missing in the studio.
Not a moment to lose-if your CD collection does not contain this, you're missing out!

Rock'n'roll at its most rebellious 7 Mar 2005

Great song selection, great mastering 19 Sep 2011
By Andrew Claps - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Most reasonably educated music lovers will immediately recognize the name Little Richard. He may not have the public cachet of, say, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, or other rock and roll pioneers, but he's no less important. In fact, in terms of representing what early rock and the youth culture was all about, Richard was perhaps even MORE important.

This isn't a discourse on the cultural importance of Little Richard--which is pretty well established by this point--but rather a brief summation of Ace's "22 Classic Cuts" compilation. While not nearly the most comprehensive Little Richard collection out there, "22 Classic Cuts" may well be the best in the here and now. The 22 songs represented on the collection are pretty much the cream of Richard's Specialty career. He cut other songs at the label, which are covered on other comps, but none approached the brilliance of the songs here. "Lucille"? Check. "Long Tall Sally"? Double check. "Keep a Knockin"? Triple check. And on and on.

As a recovering audiophile, I consider audio quality moderately important. Good mastering can make an otherwise painful listening experience into a glorious one. I'm glad to report that the mastering on "22 Classic Cuts" is absolutely first-rate. Ace has always done great remastering jobs, and this is no different. The clarity and liveliness are pretty stunning, the mastering bettered only by the expensive and OOP Mobile Fidelity gold disc of a few years back--and, then, not by much.

On September 20, the renowned Bear Family is scheduled to release a 31-track single-disc compilation called "Rocks." The label has long been known for awesome liner notes and incomparable remastering, so it may be a tough act for Ace's comp to beat. Then again, the extra tracks that the Bear disc has are second-tier songs, in my opinion, while the Ace comp focuses on the absolute best. The liner notes are no contest, as the Bear CD is going to have a whopping 60 pages of them, while the Ace offering has barely eight. The mastering will be interesting; Bear is well known for its superb remastering, but the Ace is going to be hard to beat, as it really has phenomenal sound quality. The other thing the Ace comp has going for it vis a vis the Bear is its price. I got mine from a private seller for a shade under $16; the Bear set is going to retail for $25. That's a big difference. I presume that Little Richard diehards will likely spend the extra cash and go for the "Rocks" disc, but as a big Richard fan myself, I'll have no qualms living with "22 Classic Cuts" for a long time. It contains the cream of the Little Richard crop, and sonically it absolutely CRUSHES "The Georgia Peach" and other Specialty sets I've heard. Bravo to Ace for compiling such an excellent tribute to one of the most important musical figures of the 20th century.
Basically his first two albums on one disk 3 Sep 2013
By Phil (San Diego) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great sound, tight playlist. Contains 21 of the 24 songs from Little Richard's first two albums ("Boo Hoo Hoo Hoo" is listed here as "I'll Never Let You Go"). The final track of this 22 song compilation comes from a single released in the sixties. Every Little Richard hit is here except for his 1986 comeback, Great Gosh A'Mighty from the soundtrack to "Down and Out in Beverly Hills".

There are larger collections out there but this ties up all the hits in one place with a red ribbon around 'em. If all you're familiar with are a few of the biggest classics, you're going to love this thing from start to finish. Songs like "The Girl Can't Help It" and "She's Got It" will be on your playlist for months.

If you're hungry for more of this sound, Little Richard was known for his killer backing band, The Upsetters. When he started showing his vocal prowess on volumes one and two of Pray Along With Little Richard in the late 1950s, the Upsetters continued recording on their own. While their output wasn't as consistent as Little Richard's mid-fifties barn-burners, the highlights equal or surpass the classics here. If you start with the sound samples to "Upsetter", "The Strip", and "Hot Peppers", you'll probably wind up getting that collection too.
