Little Richard Rocks 'Em In Canada

(4 out of 5 stars)
"In his little-discussed (3rd) Comeback ('68 to '71), Mr. Penniman never sounded better: a deeper voice, a harder piano, and a riproaring Rock 'n Soul band. It is tragic that this jubilant period in his chaotic career is not fully represented on record [there are 6 or 7 amazing Reprise tracks and a few exciting cuts for Brunswick]. But thanks to this home video we at least get a strong taste of the live in '69 Little Richard on FILM, partying with all his girlfriends from the '50s: Lucille, Molly, Jenny, and Sally. Some new fans might be surprised to hear "Blueberry Hill" and "Hound Dog" - maybe they haven't learned that Richard cut these classics back in '64. What prevents me from issuing a FIVE star rating is that the Quasar plays piano on only two songs and that the opening number was actually performed next to last - the real show tells the 'rill' story! Shut up!"

"Little richard in his mid 30's. He is no longer in his prime but this is a rockin' show. He showed up John Lennon and all the other singers that sang at this concert that are not on the video. Little Richard is a tough act to follow."
Really old footage of classic Little Richard

"Poor lighting and quality of orginal footage. Intresting to see the artist in his 20s"
