Additional information about this, Little Richard vinyl art.
Richard Wayne Penniman (1932 – 2020), better known as Little Richard, was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He was an influential figure in popular music and culture for seven decades. Nicknamed “The Innovator”, “The Originator”, and “The Architect of Rock and Roll”, Penniman’s most celebrated work dates from the mid-1950s, when his charismatic showmanship and dynamic music, characterised by frenetic piano playing, pounding backbeat and raspy shouted vocals, laid the foundation for rock and roll. His innovative emotive vocalisations and uptempo rhythmic music also played a key role in the formation of other popular music genres, including soul and funk. He influenced numerous singers and musicians across musical genres from rock to hip hop; his music helped shape rhythm and blues for generations to come.
‘Baby Face’ is a popular song. The music was written by Harry Akst, the lyrics by Benny Davis. The song was published in 1926. That same year, Jan Garber had a number one hit with the song. This is a cover version by Little Richard. It reached #2 in the UK in 1959, becoming Little Richard’s highest charting single in Britain. “Baby Face” was performed and recorded by many recording artists of the time, including Al Jolson and has remained a commonly performed song.
