Another anniversary of "Tutti Frutti", one of the all time great dance hits!



Little Richard is one of the founding fathers of rock music.   He was born Richard Wayne Penniman in Macon, Georgia on December 5, 1932.

He had a string of early rock hits, including "Lucille", "Long Tall Sally", "Good Golly Miss Molly" and a few others. 

Little Richard's influence was broad and universal.  One of his biggest fans was 15-year old Paul McCartney in Liverpool.  Paul learned Little Richard's songs and played them with hometown pals John Lennon and George Harrison.  Years later, The Beatles released "Long Tall Sally" in their second US album.

Little Richard recorded "Tutti Frutti" on September 15, 1955 or many years ago.  It became one of the all-time greatest dance hits.  I don't know about you but it makes me want to dance:

".....on this day in 1955, when Little Richard walked into a New Orleans recording studio and gave birth to a record called "Tutti Frutti.""  (History.com)

And the rest is history, rock history that is!   You can get the song in this LP:  Click!

Elvis also recorded "Tutti Frutti".  It is one of the tracks on his first RCA album and the B-side of "Blue suede shoes".
