These are probably my least favorite songs from them. They’re all pretty weird, and the sound just feels kind of weak most of the time. Looking back, this group released exactly one album that I actually enjoy.
One awesome 20 minute jam with some aimless psych rock that doesn’t go anywhere. I love the title track and the rest is either just tolerable or ok.
I think I might like this one more than Tim. It’s still nothing that special to me. I guess this is one “great” band I don’t get.
Their first album, and probably their 2nd best. I always liked it ok, but it never really grabbed me. Had some real snoozers and still does. The sound on this one is pretty cool at home. In the car it feels weak.
Early version of “What We Loved Was Not Enough” and pretty good sound. But really not much to offer over the 2010 shows. It’s good, but something’s been missing for about 3 years in these.
This is the first one I might actually dislike. There’s a lot of Luke the Drifter stuff on here. Those are the songs where he just gives a lecture. It might even be half of the songs. This is really tiresome.
This seems to be the best single disc compilation of Little Richard’s early stuff that I’ve been able to find. It has all the early hits and some other songs I am not familiar with. There’s a 2nd volume that was released that has more obscure stuff from his Specialty days. What’s good about this is you don’t hear songs re-recorded. Anyway, listening to this, I’m sort of thinking that what made Little Richard exciting was his voice. The music is good, but it’s his shouting that makes it rock.
