THE IMPLOSIVE LITTLE RICHARD (JEROME RECORDS)
The legend wants it that when Little Richard was working as a dishwasher in a restaurant, he used to sing and shout in the same irrepressible way that would make him famous a few years later, when his concerts were being televised all around the world.
This set finally corroborates such a legend: The Implosive Little Richard illustrates the (re)construction process of the wildest, freest identity in rock'n'roll history.
Here are all Richard's first recordings from the early fifties with the Johnny Otis and Billy Wright bands, the Deuces of Rhythm and the Tempo Toppers.
All his pre-Specialty, pre-Tutti Frutti waxings: his four RCA singles and all the 45s he recorded for Peacock Records.
Gatefold sleeve with extensive liners, label shots, dozens of pictures, vintage press clipping and reviews.
