Jimi Hendrix & Little Richard - Friends From The Beginning
Release Date: May 18, 2004
Bitrate: 320 Kbps
Little Richard and Jimi Hendrix was Little Richard's eighteenth album release containing new material. Although many of the tracks present had been available on albums dating as far back as September 1964, the album did contain five new tracks *not* from the Vee-Jay vaults: Belle Stars, Funky Dish Rag, both instumentals probably cut in 1971, and Why Don't You Love Me?, recorded that same year; plus instrumental reworkings of Lucille and Keep A-Knockin'. Technically there was nothing "new" about the album (albeit long, stereo versions of very common sides) as it contained material over six years old, but the final release of the archived tracks, coupled with the tie-in to Jimi Hendrix as guitarist, meant that the release was a viable one.
[Tracks 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 12 Personnel include Little Richard (keyboards?); rest unknown (possibly a mix of Little Richard's 1970s touring band and contemporary studio musicians)].
Note: "Tutti Frutti" (instrumental) is actually "Long Tall Sally" (instrumental).
