don't buy this unless you like appalling sound quality...clearly made by a cheap brand who have exploited its 50 year copyright expiry and flogged me a cd which is filled with admittedly classic tunes at way below par standard...my advice is buy the expensive equivalent or wait for something better to be released...five stars for the album itself which is great, but one star for the exceptionally awful sound

This still rocks!

Ignore the mipsprint-Can't Believe is at track 3, as it was when the original vinyl was released in 1957.

It's worth £60 on London in prime condition,and nearly £200 on American Speciality. Whichever, it's worth every damn bit of it.

Little Richard was selling in bucketloads in 1955-57 and it ain't any wonder. He went like the demented Cadillac or V8 ford in the lyrics of Chuck Berry's Maybelline at everything,fast or slow,blues,rock or ballad. 110 half-a-mile ahead every track!

And now, 50 and a bit years later, how does it feel? RED-HOT!!! The sheer panache and verve of rock n roll has never died, thank God, and Little Richard's pioneering efforts still rock the joint every time it plays.

I advise you to stick with this version,simply because the 12 track original is a perfect work of art.It just doesn't need improvement,believe me,just adding to your collection forthwith!

No brainer. BUY IT!

Between 1957 and 1959, Specialty (London American in the UK) released 3 Little Richard albums, "Here's Little Richard", "Little Richard Volume 2" and, "The Fabulous Little Richard". As was the habit at the time they were essentially comprised of current or future singles and flip sides plus odd studio material that hadn't made the grade . This is the first of those albums.

Every track is a bona fide Rock'n'Roll classic. This is the creme de la creme. Richard was the guy everybody copied. You name them, from Presley on down, every other rocker you can think of produced versions of Penniman hits. But did anyone better Richard? Well no, there were interesting variants e.g. the Everly Bros, "Lucille" but Richard was never eclipsed.

Although there had been outrageous stars before, Presley again, being the key example, Little Richard was way beyond absolutely anyone. That comes through very strongly in the music which hits from the first note. Not only was it that wonderful voice, seemingly out of control and well on its way to orgasm, but there was also the marvellous driving band. At the time I, and probably others, assumed this was a crack squad put together purely for Richard but in reality this was merely the usual New Orleans session guys who regularly backed Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis etc. Nor was it the studio, Cosimo Matassa's, that was responsible for the increased energy level. Domino and co. also used Cosimos. Perhaps it was Bumps Blackwell, the producer who brought the extra ingredient.

Whatever, just buy it.

Format: Audio CD
Back in '56/'57 this was my first ever LP (I still have it), and it sounds just as exciting all these years later. It was Little Richard's first album release in Britain and demonstrated what we could expect of him, but also in tracks like 'Can't Believe You Wanna Leave' and 'Baby' shows his grounding in the blues. This album is part of the evolution of black rock 'n' roll. In order to make them palatable to the segregated white audiences of America many of the tracks featured here were covered by white artistes like Elvis, Pat Boone and The Everly Brothers, but these are the authentic earthy originals. You don't get much for your money - at just under 28 minutes that was all you could expect from a 12 inch (30cm) LP - but it's pure gold. If you want to go a step back on the evolutionary trail I recommend listening to Louis Jordan and on The Essential Collection you can find "Keep A-Knockin'", with which Little Richard had a hit later in his career.

DO NOT BUY THIS REISSUE!!!

I know it's only tuppence ha'penny but it's that cheap for a reason. It sounds like it has been recorded through a cheap Woolworth's microphone on an old cassette player while the vinyl album plays on an Dansette in a layby on the M25 in rush hour. The most appalling sound quality of music of a "studio recorded" album I have ever heard.

Which is a real shame because Little Richard's debut contains some of the most exuberant, important and exciting records ever committed to tape. You must own "Here's Little Richard". Just don't own this pitifully poor reissue.
