Little Richard ‎– The Rill Thing

Year:
Notes:
Some of the releases in this master credits the song 'Greenwood, Mississippi' incorrect, while the single release from the same year has the correct credits, see Little Richard - Greenwood Mississippi / I Saw Her Standing There. The correct writers are Albert S. Lowe Jr. and Travis Wammack. Please state a note for the incorrect credits at the release note.

The co-writer Travis Wammack released the song 1975 as a single and on an album, so this may lead to some confusion here.
In the intro to this song on a video, Travis tells the story. He was cutting a demo version of this song at Fame Recording Studios, when Little Richard come in, listen and enjoyed it. So he decided to recording it himself.

Italy version of Richards excellent self-produced comeback album released in the summer of 1970. Yielded two pop hits , and one soul hit!
Richard never sounded better !

The greatest comeback album you'll ever own. After years of struggle he finally did it HIS way : all contemporary yet good for the '50s purists too! His voice is amazing throughout . The lp even yielded two Pop hits ! FIVE stars !
