DIGGING DEEP...

Little Richard always had a way with words, was more conscious of his image than most of his contemporaries and knew how to work a crowd – he also knew how to make great rock ‘n’ roll records. His was the language of rock and roll; who else could have come up with "awop-bop-aloo-mop-alop-bam-boom"? Despite having over 20 records on the Billboard chart he is as much remembered for his persona as his music – but he made three of the greatest records of the fifties, all with classics on both sides! "I am the only thing left. I am the beautiful Little Richard from way down in Macon, Georgia. You know Otis Redding is from there, and James Brown's from there. I want you to know I am the bronze Liberace!” – Little Richard 1970
