LITTLE RICHARD-18 GREATEST HITS: If there was a more deliriously primitive call to arms in the embryonic stages of rock & roll than "A wop bop a loop bop a lop bam boom!", certainly CHUCK BERRY, ELVIS, nor even JERRY LEE LEWIS ever uttered it. Whether hoarsely screaming out the names of lascivious chicks in barnburners like GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY, JENNY JENNY and LUCILLE, or shouting about being "the architect of rock" during the ensuing decades, RICHARD PENNIMAN carved out an indelible name for himself in the mid fifties. capturing the unhinged history of LITTLE RICHARD's gatecrashing work on a single hotter than barbecue platter.

NotesTitle on spine: Little Richard's Specialty Hits Volume One.
All Original Recordings.
Limited Edition Six Record Set on Colored Vinyl.
Side L title in label "Kansas City / Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey (A Medley)" is wrong, as the original title of this recording released on The Fabulous Little Richard and on Kansas City is "Kansas City". Little Richard did never performed a medley ""Kansas City / Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey", as both different versions of "Kansas City" was recorded in autumn 1955, whereas "Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey" was recorded in May 1956. So the "medley" is a mistake, due to the intervention of an insufficiently informed person from Venice Music (see Notes to Beatles For Sale).
