"With out doubt the true king of rock n roll,the sad part being there is so little material that was recorded of this great man preforming in his prime,apart from this little short gem. Saw him in Myrtle Beach last month, still holds a crowd at 76, his band is the best I have heard also."

"Saw him just a month or so ago and he came out in a wheelchair and considerable pain and clearly on some meds... but kicked some rock and roll butt.....I love him and altho the audio on this dvd is not that great and the camera work was questionable....you could see Richard at the top of his game and he was on fire. 5 stars for performance, stage presence.. musical integrity and overall greatness.
So altho the production was not that great....it is a viable historical document.
Little Richard is fabulous, but the sound is not and it's aw

"Little Richard had something to prove at the Toronto Peace Festival in 1969 ($14.98; Shout). His last Top 40 hit was more than a decade earlier and he would never have another. But Richard was always convinced of his own fabulousness and knew the world should be convinced of it too. And he ripped the crowd into a frenzy during his half hour set, thanks to timeless classics like "Lucille" and "Long Tall Sally" -- not to mention a shirt adorned with tiny mirrors and a towering wig. DA Pennebaker captures the moment well, though the sound leaves something to be desired and at 30 minutes this is awfully short. Why not give us three hours of the day-long festival, of which this could be a highlight? On its own, it's just not enough. Visit me at michaelgiltz dot com."

"I read about this DVD in Rolling Stone magazine so thought I should see it. Rolling Stone is right, this is a classic."
