One of the definitive Little Richard anthologies, Specialty Records' 25-track Georgia Peach brings together all of Richard's hits in chronological order, along with several lesser-known, if no less top-notch, singles. These are the recordings Richard built his career upon and they showcase his most stripped-down, rockin', rhythm & blues-oriented sound. Although he had already recorded for RCA in the early '50s (anthologized on Bear Family Records' superb The Formative Years: 1951-53), it was his sides for Specialty Records, recorded between 1955 and 1959, that codified his distinctive, revelatory approach to rock & roll; roiling barroom piano, unhinged falsetto vocals and lyrics full of cheeky innuendo just this side of dirty. Included here are such classic recordings as "Tutti Frutti," "Good Golly Miss Molly," Slippin' and Slidin'," "Long Tall Sally," "Jenny, Jenny, Jenny," and more. Also included are such lesser appreciated, but no less incendiary cuts as "Heebie Jeebies," "She's Got It," and "Rip It Up," among others. If you are looking for a collection that brings together a cross-section of Richard's most definitive early career sides, then look no further than Georgia Peach. ~ Matt Collar
