    In the early 1950s, Little Richard Penniman combined the spirit of church music, the raunch of blues and the swing of New Orleans jazz and turned it into something altogether new — rock ’n’ roll. Over the course of several sessions, the Little Richard sound began to develop around hits like “Tutti Frutti,” “Good Golly Miss Molly,” “Long Tall Sally” and “Lucille,” to name a few.

    On June 2, 2015, Specialty Records — now a unit of Concord Music Group — will release Directly From My Heart: The Best of the Specialty & Vee-Jay Years, an all-new three-CD box set containing 64 songs that chronicle Little Richard’s career from 1956 to 1965. The collection contains Richard’s classics as well as B-sides and rarities. Also included is a 36-page illustrated booklet featuring a handful of rare photos and new liner notes by singer/songwriter/music historian Billy Vera.
