Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60656 (stereo).

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

The great R&R singer Little Richard's famous Gospel recording.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

The famous story - Little Richard virtually vanished from the public eye for a few years in the late 1950s, then he returned to the business as a gospel singer in the early 1960s.

His public image as a great R&R singer might be too strong, and actually we cannot decide how this gospel singer Little Richard was. His gospel singing is attractive and interesting, but it's uncertain whether he was a great gospel singer or not...

Anyway, Little Richard sounds like nobody else - he always is himself.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
