Presented in their alternate takes in the same sequence as the original album, the outtakes are only lacking ‘Jenny Jenny,’ the master recording of which was a combination of takes, leaving no alternates in existence.

No, Little Richard – born Richard Penniman in Macon, Georgia, in 1932 – was just being honest. His influence is incalculable. The Beatles learned their ecstatic falsetto shouts from him; James Brown said he was the first to put the funk in rhythm. Little Richard was the freakiest of all the great rock & rollers – his sexual expressiveness was untempered by Elvis Presley’s down-home charm, Chuck Berry’s sly wit, Jerry Lee Lewis’s wolfish malevolence, Buddy Holly’s pop sensibility or Fats Domino’s avuncular geniality. Richard’s feral woo conflated the spiritual and the orgasmic in a way that changed the way musicians communicated desire forever. His peers took a different tack – Elvis Presley's version rocks harder, the Everly Brothers turned it into a hop – but Little Richard's swing shows his facility with jump blues, an endearing trait for a rocker who always seemed to operate at full tilt.
