Little Richard
"Original Rock & Roll" (Vinyl)

Back in the golden age of Rock n' Roll, it wasn't common for an artist to release a full-length LP.  45 rpm singles were the soup du jour, whether they were headed to the radio station, the juke box or the teeny-bopper's basement hi-fi.

To compile an album of Little Richard's music isn't hard, (he certainly had enough hits to fill both sides of this record) but it's important to remember that there really won't be any "original" LP to be found of this music.    This particular example is a Canadian pressing.  Some basic internet searches show that this same album was released in different world markets with different art work.
