  1. Later released as "In The Beginning". (Cut before the Specialty stuff?)
    Whatever the case, this is new to me and I gotta check it out.

  2. A little research reveals the RCA cuts were '51 - '52, 3 years before the Specialty sessions.
    Who new? He started on the big time commercial label! (They probably didn't know what to make of him.)
    But the R&B Specialty label sent him into orbit!

    1. Thank you very much for the research contribution Rev. !

  3. Thanks for this, amazing when one considers these tracks date from 51-52 and Richard is still with us today. I saw him perform live once, circa 1972, it was a fun concert.

    1. RCA CAMDEN's mono-only LP entitled LITTLE RICHARD and BUCK RAM and his ROCK'N RAM ORCHESTRA (CAL 420) was a budget line item that in the late 1950s sold for under two bucks (ram). That this set of obscurities has since become a top dollar collectable is one of the vagaries of the vinyl world.

      In the early '50s, (Little) Richard Penniman was one of the pioneers of rock & roll, although his hard-edged original songs always had wider acceptance when diluted by white cover artists like Pat Boone ("Tutti Frutti" indeed!).
      Buck Ram's greatest success was in guiding the careers of and writing hit singles for the Platters.

      All of Side One was recorded for RCA at WGST Studio in Altanta. The first two tracks on Side Two are credited to Richard, yet there's no session info available on either.

    (a great discographical site), pairs up "Please Have Mercy.." w/"I Brought it On..",
    and "Thinkin' 'Bout.." w/"Get Rich.." on the RCA 45s. (Not that that necessarily helps with session dates.)
    Nice to see the personnel info. Great work!

    1. Yes luckily this information has been available, and I have the doubt if the Fred Jackson (tenor sax), is the same as the one in this post:
