Label: Fantasy Records
The recordings Richard did for Specialty remain some of the greatest rave-ups in the history of rock 'n' roll. His wild-man shrieking and storming New Orleans-soaked R&B bounce are undeniable. Sure, you know the hits, but there are so many excellent tracks on this comp that deserve to be heard outside of "Tutti Frutti." Get in to "Slippin' And Slidin'" and "Rip It Up."
