AllMusic Review by

By January 25, 1967, when he cut this live album, Little Richard had re-recorded his original Specialty Records hits for Vee-Jay and for Modern Records. Now, he was signed to OKeh, and before a live audience at "Club OKeh" in Hollywood, he laid them down once again -- "Tutti Frutti," "Long Tall Sally," and ten others -- fronting a band led by his old Specialty Records compatriot Larry Williams. It's an exciting set before an enthusiastic audience, and as long as you keep in mind that these are not the original recordings, a good buy. (Originally released in July 1967 on OKeh Records as OKeh 14121, Greatest Hits Recorded Live has been reissued by Epic Records several times, most recently in 1986 as Epic 40389.)
