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.
‘Tutti Frutti’ (Italian: “All fruits”) is a song written by Little Richard and Dorothy LaBostrie that was first recorded in 1955, becoming Little Richard’s first major hit record. With its opening cry of “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-wop-bam-boom!” (a verbal rendition of a drum pattern that Little Richard had imagined) and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also a model for rock and roll itself. The song introduced several of rock music’s most characteristic musical features, including its loud volume, powerful vocal style, and distinctive beat and rhythm.
The Tutti-Frutti Ice Cream – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a ice cream cone topped with three scoops of tutti-frutti ice cream. Tutti frutti (from Italian tutti i frutti, “all fruits”; also hyphenated tutti-frutti) is a colourful confectionery containing various chopped and usually candied fruits, or an artificial or natural flavouring simulating the combined flavour of many different fruits. It is most notable in Western countries outside of Italy in the form of ice cream. Fruits used for tutti frutti ice cream include cherries, raisins, and pineapple.
