AllMusic Review by

For the umpteenth time, Little Richard re-records some of his hits, along with some rock & roll oldies. (Though the album contains no information beyond the titles, the tracks seem to come from the 1964-1965 Vee-Jay sessions.) These sound like first takes, so that it's hard to believe this run-through took The Georgia Peach more than an afternoon to cut. He's as spirited as ever, but it's a travesty how many times be has carelessly done this material over and over for a quick paycheck.
