“Have you noticed that many recording artists gain instant popularity as a result of making one hit record and then quickly fade from public view? These artists just never seem to be able to follow up their one success with the other hits so necessary to sustain your popularity. This seems to be true particularly in the rock ‘n’ roll field; and, leads us to believe that it was not the artist himself who made the hit, but the irresistible rhythm of the music or the novelty lyrics. The outstanding exception to this flash-and fade pattern is the truly phenomenal Little Richard. His ten consecutive double-sided hit records prove beyond any doubt that he is a star performer, and not just an artist lucky enough to record a song destined to hit because of the beat or lyrics. In fact, a Little Richard treatment can breathe life into lacklustre material. This was demonstrated several times when other big-name artists tried to ‘cover’ or imitate Little Richard’s songs - but with mediocre success.” What we are trying to say here at AVID is that here is a truly legendary Rock n Roll star who tore down all the rules and re-wrote to book on how to write and perform a song and is still there today! Take a look at the song credits on this fantastic platter and the name Penniman keeps coming back at you! Absolutely not a one hit wonder, Little Richard is still going strong today having influenced everyone from The Beatles to Dylan to Hendrix to Michael Jackson, Prince and Elton John to the new breed of pop, soul and r&b artists of today. The list is endless and pretty much would have to include anyone who has picked up a pen to write a lyric or a melody or grabbed a microphone and has made their mark on rock and roll over the last 60 years! A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-wop-bam-boom! Indeed!
