Blender (Magazine) - p.855 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he details remain his own. Marvel as Richard rushes to get ahead of himself on 'Ready Teddy' and 'Jenny Jenny'....Ponder his irrepressible desire to pound the piano faster than Jerry Lee Lewis pursued by a bear."

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.
