    Little Richard

    The Album "The Fabulous Little Richard " Recorded in 1958 for Specialty is a series of outtakes and studio tracks,  many of which (eight sides) feature the backing vocals of The Stewart Sisters, which apparently were added at Little Richard’s request in an attempt to give the album a more gospel feel.
