A bizarre album from the father of rock 'n' roll.
2007 | Label: Vee-Jay Records / The Orchard

It was 1965, and Little Richard had screwed up. Quitting rock and roll at the height of his fame to become a minister, he'd sat out the decline of the music only to be shocked to hear himself when the Beatles appeared, bearing his "Wooooo!" (which he'd appropriated from Alex Bradford). Returning from a tour of England, he assembled a band, got a record deal with Vee-Jay, and made this bizarre album. Its highlight… read more »

Sweeeet!

I'll be hornswoggled if that ain't Don 'Sugarcane' Harris playing violin all over 'Going Home Tomorrow'!! Yes, the same guy who both penned a hit for Tom Jones ('What's New Pussycat?') and played on 'Willie The Pimp' with Zappa and Beefheart... correct me if I'm wrong, but... Hoy Hoy Hoy.

Oddly compelling

SoulStranger

To get it out of this way: yes, Jimi Hendrix plays on this, but you won't find his characteristic sound here. Instead you'll find Little Richard's idiosyncratic takes on material like "Goodnight Irene," "Only You," and "Memories are Made of This" using quirky arrangements, great bands, and an updated (to the mid-60s, mind you) version of his classic sound. And then at the end there's his version of "I Don't Know What You've Got," unquestionably one of the finest soul ballads of the 60s. Well worth a download for fans of the era.

A very good record

jbarntt

Little Richard was back ! He used two bands to record this one, his stage band, which included Jimi Hendrix as his guitar guy, and the Specialty records house band. This record rocks ! Highly recommended. It is one of the best of Little Richard's recordings. You won't go wrong with this one .

Who Is…Gentleman Jesse

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

A lot has changed for Atlanta rocker Jesse Smith in the last four years, both for good and ill. He got married, but also lost friends to cancer (ATL punk staple Bobby Ubangi) and drugs (Jay Reatard). He started planning a restaurant with some friends, but got violently mugged on Atlanta's streets. His band's profile rose, but he questioned if his relative success was worth the draining workload. It's this back-and-forth conflict that fuels Leaving… more »

Telling You About the Blues, in Texas, Atlanta and Detroit

By John Morthland, Contributor

Let me tell you about Let Me Tell You About the Blues, a series of three-disc packages (several of which are available on eMusic) that attempts to trace the evolution of the music by focusing on geographic areas. Results are mixed, as they almost always are on compilations, in this case due largely to the fact that anything recorded in a specific city or region is defined as belonging to that area. To cite one… more »
