Format: Audio CD
Not for the first time a B side becomes the hit though it was to be for others some 7 years later when the Kingsmen took it to the summit.
Today there's said to be at least 1000 versions of a song which Berry cobbled together from 2 others when it was the B side of his version of You are my Sunshine.
Here for the first time is the complete Flip recordings.
Berry was on a number of hit records as the bass singer on quite a few doowop records in the 50s on his next label Modern

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but forgotten 5 Nov. 2004
By Ron Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard about a 20 second clip of the original Louie, Louie on an episode of Northern Exposure. I then downloaded the song of iTunes (its no longer available on iTunes, however) and really liked his sound. So, I found this on Amazon, but with no sound clips, or reviews, I pretty much had to buy it on faith and impulse. I'm glad I did. This is a very expansive 30-track look at his career and it includes a great biographical booklet that provides a story for just about every track that is on here. The music is a very good blend of soul music and doo-wop from the late fifties and early sixties, and the sound quality is fantastic. He never had a big hit, even with his excellent rendition of Louie, Louie, but there are still a lot of great songs. Most notable are In a Real Big Way, No Kissin' and a Huggin', Well Done, Its All Right, and Have Love Will Travel (even though it's basically a retread of Louie, Louie, it's still a good song. Granted, there are some songs on here that don't work as well as others, especially those from his brief attempt at country, and it seems that after a while he was trying to find anything that would give him a decent hit. He did, after all, write a hit song that other people were making famous. But still with 30 songs, there is a lot to like on this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Louie Louie 11 Sept. 2010
By Roy R Ricks Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For anyone who has only heard the Kingsmen's version of Louie Louie Richard Berry is the man who wrote the song and first recorded it. The entire cd is full of very good R&B from the period. Also check out Have Love Will Travel. He wrote that one too.

5.0 out of 5 stars My moms wish list item 10 Jan. 2013
By Kimberly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was one of the items on her wish list for christmas. Could not find the " 10 flip hits" she wanted, but did find this have love.... She was thrilled with it. Old people get such a kick out of hearing the songs from their teens, I gues. The cd was great, no complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars The great RICHARD BERRY. 10 April 2014
By JOSEPH JEDLICKA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Richard Berry is a pioneer of Rhythm and Blues artistry who never received the credit he certainly deserved for bringing some of the classic songs that we know and love.
