CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Concord/Specialty Records release: Here's Little Richard - New Release Review

This is the reissue of Little Richards debut album, Here's Little Richard. It includes the original 12 tracks ( Tutti Frutti; True, Fine Mama; Can't Believe You Wanna Leave; Ready Teddy; Baby; Slippin' and Slidin'; Long Tall Sally; Miss Ann; Oh Why?; Rip It Up; Jenny Jenny and She's Got It. In addition this new release includes a demo for Baby, All Night Long, an interview with Specialty Records Founder Art Rupe and two bonus videos. The videos are screen tests for Tutti Frutti and Long Tall Sally. I'm sure if you're a Little Richard fan you already know that this is a terrific package but if that isn't enough, along with this comes a 22 page hard paper booklet in an envelope cover marked 1st audition tape To: Specialty Records etc with an original post mark of Feb 16, 1955. It's packed full of info including everything from the original liner notes to 14 vintage photographs, master recording notes, and a great historical documentation of the events of the time. Also included is a cool poster of Little Richard. This is a must for anyone who loves the drive of Little Richard. It's a blast!
