While many of the first rock ‘n roll performers (like Elvis Presley) performed covers of songs written by others, Little Richard was both a performer and a songwriter. One of his most important hits was the song “Tutti Frutti” which he co-wrote with Dororthy LeBostrie – a song that captured a defining moment for rock and roll history. “Tutti Frutti” was recorded on September 14, 1955 at J&M Studios in New Orleans. J&M was home to many of early rock ‘n roll’s foundational recordings, not only by Little Richard, but also those of Fats Domino and Guitar Slim. J&M’s founder Cossimo Matassa was even inducted, as a non-performer, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his contributions to rock ‘n roll’s earliest recordings. Many of the session musicians who played on “Tutti Frutti” are the same musicians who played on other early rock n’ roll recordings, like those of Fats Domino. This includes tenor saxophonist Lee Allen, and baritone saxophonist Alvin “Red” Tyler. Frank Fields played double bass and Earl Palmer was on drums during these sessions, and Justin Adams played guitar on the track. “Tutti Frutti” was released by Specialty in October 1955, only a few weeks after recording. By December, the song had reached the Billboard Rhythm and Blues Charts and by February of 1956, it had risen to number two. The song’s crossover success is a bit more complicated. In 1955, African American artists like Little Richard faced the added struggle of constant competition of cover versions by white artists. For example, Pat Boone’s “Tutti Frutti” was released shortly after Richard’s and reached number 12 on the Pop charts. Little Richard’s version also crossed over to the Pop charts but only reached #21. Undoubtedly, Penniman had created a classic song and everyone was drawn to it. Elvis Presley also covered “Tutti Frutti” in March of 1926. The Beatles included it as part of their live set in their early touring days, and Queen even played it on tour in the eighties. It is certainly one of rock ‘n roll’s foundational tracks and a song that changed popular music history forever. It was voted #1 on Mojo’s 2007 list of “The Top 100 Records that Changed the World” declaring it “the sound of the birth of rock and roll.” The US Library of Congress National Recording Registry added Little Richard’s original version to its registry in 2010, explaining that its “unique vocalizing over the irresistible beat announced a new era in music.” ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
