Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

Obviously heard some of his stuff over the years but this is the first album of his I have owned and listened to right through. The sound quality isn't great but that can't disguise some great tracks. A couple I had to double check it was him singing as I actually thought it was a female singer!
Great album with standout tracks for me including Can't Believe You Wanna Leave, Oh Why? and She's Got it

Good gawd, this is a great 50's record!! Little Richard's debut on Specialty Records was also his best. The vocals, the swag, the piano...and good lord, the tenor sax on this disc is terrific! Little Richard has to be in at least the top 3 of most important artists of the early Rock n Roll era. If you are going to have any 50's records in your collection, have this one.

Best tracks: Tutti Frutti, Ready Teddy, Long Tall Sally, Can't Believe You Wanna Leave, Rip it Up, True Fine Mama

I did not expect to love this as much as I did. Awesome album, best 50's album I've heard so far.

Favorites: Tutti Fruiti, Ready Teddy, Slippin' And Slidin', Long Tall Sally, Rip It Up, Jenny Jenny, She's Got It.

This has to be the best album of the 1950’s next to Elvis’ debut. When I first heard this it blew me away. There would certainly be no Beatles or any other British Invasion band without little Richard. He is probably the most underrated rock icon and should be up there with Chuck Berry and Elvis. This is one of my favorite albums and is an absolute joy to listen to. God bless Little Richard.

A pioneering debut that birthed the rock 'n' roll genre, directly influencing countless imitators (*coughs* elvis *coughs*). Little Richard is absolutely full of energy and this record is a complete blitz !

It's all just one chord progression, but it's really good.

This must be history’s best aged album; I never expected myself enjoying a ‘50s album so much, yet here I am.

The peak of rock ‘n’ roll and the beginning of soul; Otis Redding’s biggest inspiration and John Lennon’s biggest idol.

A joyful masterwork that just so happens to be the very essence of cool. What energy, what a voice, what a debut.
