Welcome to the sacred scrolls of rock & roll. Little Richard's turbo-charged R&B, as heard on the classic 1950s Specialty Records sessions featured on this collection, literally changed the world. The frenetic, pumping piano riffs and reckless, wild, soul-on-fire vocal whooping that electrify "Tutti Frutti," "Good Golly Miss Molly," "Long Tall Sally," and the rest, served as the hottest-sounding alarm clock ever heard, alerting a complacent post-war America that rock & roll was here to stay.
