COLLECTOR'S DIGIPACK SERIES

2 ORIGINAL ALBUMS ON 1 CD

INCLUDES 6 BONUS TRACKS

This CD features two of Little Richard’s most overlooked albums, both of which were originally released in the 1960s by Vee-Jay Records: the magnificent Little Richard Is Back, and the long unavailable andequally splendid His Greatest Hits (consisting of new versions with different arrangements of early Richard successes from the 1950’s). These albums mark Richard’s return to secular music, a decade after his popular success in the mid-’50s with the Specialty label. In addition to remaking hits, Richard also added new rock, blues, and R&B material full of verve on these LPs. Even though the commercial impact was minimal, the performances are powerful and the Hi-Fi sound quality is gorgeous. Both sensational albums have been re-mastered and packaged together in this very special collector’s edition, which also contains 6 bonus tracks from the same period (featuring an unknown Jimi Hendrix, who got some lead guitar space on the hard to find soul treasures: "I Don't Know What You've Got But It's Got Me" and "Dance a Go Go ".
