Background: Released in 1958, Little Richard was the second LP by Little Richard.

The album reached #76 on the U.S. album charts. gave Little Richard a 4 1/2 star review:

Little Richard was every bit as rockin’ as his first album, if not more so; “Keep A’Knockin’,” “Lucille,” “Good Golly Miss Molly,” and “The Girl Can’t Help It” were hits for the right reason, “All Around the World” is still a clarion call for the power of the music (and most adults were probably not comforted by the song’s proclamation that young fans of the big beat “never have time for romance/ they only wanna dance”), “Send Me Some Lovin'” slows down the tempo while still laying out the good groove, “Ooh! My Soul” is deliciously lascivious, and there isn’t a single throwaway among the 12 tunes on deck. Richard’s band (sadly unidentified by name) are in glorious form as well, and Cosimo Matassa (who recorded the bulk of these songs at his tiny J&M Studios in New Orleans) makes these sessions sound as raucous as they deserved. Little Richard was too crazed to win over many suspicious parents in 1958, but thankfully it wails loud enough that no one was likely to hear them complain, and it still gets the party started 50 years on.
