AllMusic Review by

It's difficult to argue with the title of this collection, since it showcases 11 incredible tracks from Little Richard's '50s tenure at Los Angeles' Specialty Records, where the Macon, Georgia, native helped invent rock and roll. Along with the biggest hits--"Tutti Frutti," "Lucille," "Good Golly Miss Molly," "Jenny Jenny," "Long Tall Sally"--HIS VERY BEST includes inimitably Little Richard-ized versions of rock and roll and pop hits like "Hound Dog," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," and "Goodnight Irene."
