Album Review

This make-no-mistakes, 31-track single-disc set from Bear Family Records collects the absolutely essential sides that the gospel-fueled, raucous and electric Little Richard wrote and recorded in his prime between 1951 and 1966, including enduring and rocking touchstones like 1955’s “Tutti Frutti,” 1956’s “Long Tall Sally” and “The Girl Can’t Help It,” 1957’s “Lucille” and “Jenny, Jenny,” and 1958’s “Good Golly Miss Molly” and “Ooh! My Soul,” among others. What you need is here. The rest, as they say, is history.
