Here's Little Richard - Little Richard (1957)

"I came from a family where my people didn't like rhythm and blues," Little Richard told Rolling Stone in 1970. "Bing Crosby, 'Pennies From Heaven,' Ella Fitzgerald was all I heard. And I knew there was something that could be louder than that, but I didn't know where to find it. And I found it was me." Richard's raucous debut collected singles such as "Good Golly, Miss Molly," in which his boogie-woogie piano and falsetto scream ignited the unfettered possibilities of rock & roll. "Tutti Frutti" still has the most inspired rock lyric on record: "A wop bop alu bop, a wop bam boom!"

Total album sales: Under 500,000

Peak chart position: 13

DudeAsInCool....You know your music. Little Richard is at the core of the music of the last 50 years. I bought all those records in the late 1950s and played them on my little turntable. I was 12. I remember the Specialty Record Label: yellow, black and white. My favorite Richard songs are Good Golly Miss Molly, Lucille & She's Got It. Richard inspired Paul McCartney as Chuck Berry inspired John Lennon.

Little Richard was as instrumental as Elvis, Chuck Berry or Jerry Lee Lewis. He certainly knows how to play the piano... :scratchin:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
