(2008/Specialty-Concord Music) 25 Tracks - 1955-1964 - When Little Richard recorded ´´Tutti Frutti´´ in 1955 at Cosimo´s Studio in New Orleans with A&R man Bumps Blackwell, rock ´n´ roll was taken to a thrilling new level. The pounding piano, the high voice and trills, and the sexually suggestive lyrics catapulted the former Richard Penniman to the top of the charts and to legendary status. Now, Specialty Records (now owned by Concord Music Group) proudly presents The Very Best of Little Richard, a comprehensive 25-track compilation, and the first in 20 years to showcase all the Rock ‘n´ Roll Hall of Famer´s Specialty hits. The collection also features an original pre-rock ‘n´ roll demo, 1955´s ´´Baby,´´ plus a rousing live medley of ´´Ain´t That a Shame / I Got a Woman´´/´´Tutti Frutti´´ recorded in Paris in 1964 and a rehearsal take of ´´Hound Dog´´ (1956). Billy Vera, himself a rock ‘n´ roll and R&B veteran, wrote the liner notes. Little Richard´s demo for Specialty Records president Art Rupe was reportedly a series of run-of-the-mill blues songs. Nevertheless, Rupe bought him out of his Duke / Peacock Records contract and sent him to New Orleans to work with Specialty´s A&R man Bumps Blackwell. The all-star team of tenor saxman Lee Allen and drummer Earl Palmer were in place. But a hit just didn´t emerge during their first recording session, so the team adjourned for lunch. While at lunch, Richard sat down at a piano and started singing a song called ´´Tutti Frutti, Good Bootie,´´ a ribald ditty from his live set. Blackwell heard something different, and the lyrics were toned down a tad. Back at Cosimo´s studio, as fast as you could say ´´a-wop-bop-a-lu-bop-a-wop-bam-boom,´´ a hit was born and so was a star. The follow-up, ´´Long Tall Sally,´´ certified gold, and ´´Rip It Up´´ and ´´Ready Teddy´´ became a two-sided hit. As annotator Vera writes, ´´Between his hit records and his thrilling live performances, Little Richard has now become a bona fide rock ‘n´ roll star, a hero to ´50s teens and the epitome of crazy, man, crazy.´´ And the hits just kept on coming: ´´Lucille,´´ ´´Send Me Some Lovin´,´´ ´´Good Golly Miss Molly,´´ ´´Jenny Jenny´´ and ´´Keep A-Knockin´.´´ However, while in flight during an Australian tour in 1957, Richard watched in horror as the airplane´s engine caught fire. According to Vera´s notes, ´´He vowed then and there to quit singing the devil´s music and become a minister should he survive the ordeal.´´ He survived, and jumped back and forth over the years between rock ‘n´ roll and the ministry. But by that point, Little Richard´s hit-making streak had ended, and we can hear the lack of focus in a previously unissued rehearsal take of ´´Hound Dog.´´ Little Richard remains a living legend, frequently appearing in movies and television commercials. But there was a chemistry at Specialty in the mid-‘50s that resulted in the rare energy you´ll hear on The Very Best of Little Richard. No other label was ever able to match it!

On September 11, 2001, Lisa Beamer was thrust into the national spotlight after her husband, Todd, became an American hero by preventing terrorist hijackers from almost certainly flying United Flight 93 into the White House or the United States Capitol. Instead, Todd led a group of passengers to resist the hijackers, forcing the plane to crash into a Pennsylvania field. Todd and the other heroes of Flight 93 gave their lives so that untold others would be spared. Nothing could be more heroic. Lisa is now telling that story, and much more. She explores the tragic events of that day, revealing some information never before published. She also looks at the life of her husband, telling how and why he was prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice and the reason for her hope, courage, and quiet personal strength. This is Todd and Lisa´s story, but it´s also ours, for all of us who long to have the personal qualities of a real hero. This book shows us what they are and how to develop them. The phrase, ´´Let´s Roll´´ were the last words the GTE Airfone operator heard from Todd before the crash. They have become a rallying cry for all Americans to move ahead, despite pain and suffering, with hope, courage, and strength. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Helm.

This program includes a foreword written and read by Grace Slick, and an afterword written and read by Jack Casady.From the man who made a name for himself as a founding member and lead guitarist of Jefferson Airplane comes a memoir that offers a rare glimpse into the heart and soul of a musical genius - and a vivid journey through the psychedelic era in America. ´´Music is the reward for being alive”, writes Jorma Kaukonen in this candid and emotional account of his life and work. ´´It stirs memory in a singular way that is unmatched.” In a career that has already spanned a half-century - one that has earned him induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among other honors - Jorma is best known for his legendary bands Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna. But before he won worldwide recognition he was just a young man with a passion and a dream. Been So Long is the story of how Jorma found his place in the world of music and beyond. The grandson of Finnish and Russian-Jewish immigrants whose formative years were spent abroad with his American-born diplomat father, Jorma channeled his life experiences - from his coming-of-age in Pakistan and the Philippines to his early gigs with Jack Casady in D.C. to his jam sessions in San Francisco with Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, and other contemporaries - into his art in unique and revelatory ways. Been So Long charts not only Jorma’s association with the bands that made him famous but goes into never-before-told details about his addiction and recovery, his troubled first marriage and still-thriving second, and more. Interspersed with diary entries, personal correspondence, and song lyrics, this memoir is as unforgettable and inspiring as Jorma’s music itself. This program includes live bonus music.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, an accompanying PDF will 1. Language: English.
