These 26 tracks come from 1955-1964, all but defining Ace's Golden Age of American Rock'n'Roll. They were released in Britain on the London American label, each bearing the legend "Recorded by SPECIALTY, Hollywood" - a phrase that promised pounding piano riffs, honking sax solos, a solid backbeat , and as much screaming excitement as anyone ever squeezed into a record groove. They are on the CD in the order that they first hit the British shores, A-side followed by B-side. This is how we built up our Little Richard collection but that was certainly not the order in which they were recorded.
We got his third US release as a starter and eventually picked up his first two hits after a softening up process.
