This essential LP release includes Richardâs third album, The Fabulous Little Richard, originally issued in March 1959 by the Specialty label. It contains early recordings that werenât included on the first two LPs, some of which were cut before âTutti Fruttiâ (1955), and others that were taken from Richardâs last Specialty session (October 1957), but went unissued. All of these original gems feature a virtual whoâs who of fabulous musicians from the Crescent City scene, including Lee Allen, Alvin âRedâ Tyler, Ray Montrell, Frank Fields and Earl Palmer, among others. Some of the earlier recordings were overdubbed with backing vocals by The Stewart Sisters, perhaps in an attempt to update them in the wake of ex-Specialty artist Sam Cookeâs pop success. In addition to the original masterpiece, this collectorâs limited edition contains 4 bonus tracks from the same period â the rocking âHeeby- Jeebies,â âBaby Face,â the soulful ballad âCanât Believe You Wanna Leave,â and the joyful âHey-Hey-Hey-Hey.â
