Complete your Little Richard collection. Fans waited over a year for Richards second Reprise album, with great anticipation over an album at least as great as the first, The Rill Thing, a real return to the roots, earthy, lowdown mix of the old and the new. Mysteriously the follow up veered a lot more towards pop/bubble gum, and had no acoustic piano, and a very thin rhythm section, mixed way back ; a fem chorus is to the fore throughout the album. So a great chance to knock some classics from Hank Williams, credence, and Motown, out of the park, stop at second or third base.

In contrast to his 1970 Reprise album The Rill Thing, which constituted a serious updating of his sound, complete with a brace of new songs, Little Richard's King of Rock & Roll was deliberately less ambitious, built around covers of material that early-'70s audiences would have known well by way of Motown, the Rolling Stones, Three Dog Night, Creedence Clearwater Revival, et al.
