Hey, Mark...I don't know if you are checking back, but this is Nurse Nancy...the lady in red. You guys were absolutely outstanding Saturday night in Pennsylvania...I've seen a number of shows now and that was, hands down, the most awesome performance I can remember...applause, applause!

Richard Lover!

I wonder if you backed up Little Richard at the Soveriegn Bank show in September, 2003? Richard sang "Shake Your Hips" and an uptempo tune which had the line "I'm so glad to be born in the U.S.A." - tremendous show by Star and Band.

I wonder if you've bent an ear to Richard's "I Don't Know What You've Got", with Hendrix's nice intro. I'm sure the fans would go nuts if this Soul Classic could become a set piece.

Thank you!

Beau

'Evenin' Beau...saw your reply to Mark and was wondering if you know any of the band. They are not only one of the most talented groups people I have ever seen perform...they are also, hands down,the nicest. Just thought I'd share before I collapse in a heap...Nurse Nancy

Richard Lover!

Hello First Nurse of Rock,

Relax and let the Richard vibe pervade your Soul.
As LR contemporary Carl Gardner might say,
Baby, that is Rock and Roll!

I am not entirely sure what you meant by that, but I sense rather strongly that it was definitely uncomplimentary. I am a real person with a busy life. I adore Richard and his music and enjoy my travels to see Richard and hear his music. If my posts offend you, I aplogize. Nancy

Richard Lover!

It's easy to be an Elvis Presley fan. Sure there remain those lost Sun sides, those missing RCA alternates, probably miles of deleted production numbers from films - speakin' of films, what in the world happened to his first film, "The Pied Piper Of Cleveland"? Back in 1992, Goldmine magazine printed a lengthy notice that the property did exist and was purchased by a group intent on presenting it as a 1993 TV Special. Anyway, you want to hear Elvis sing "Little Sister" in fourteen variations - no problem. You wanna watch Elvis dress in drag (not that there's something wrong with it) in "Girl Happy"? Fine. They probably got a copy at the 7-11.
Same with James Brown (sure there's probably a ton of unreleased concerts which make the released ones sound like rehearsals), but you wanna hear "Ain't That A Groove, Part One"? No problem. I'll do ya one better: how about "Ain't That A Groove, Part Two"? There's even a live version recorded at the Latin Casino and now available from Japan.
How about, let's see, Fats Domino? Get my point?
Here we have a first draft Hall Of Famer, easily the most influential, genre-crossing, genre-establishing artist since the '50s, and some of his best material never even got reissued on vinyl!
So it's not real nice to criticize a Post contributor who is willing to travel a great distance to a Richard show and recount that experience in an intellectual and exuberant way, to other appreciative fans.
Gotta believe that Little Richard himself realizes what a treasure trove is gathering serious vaultdust in countless comapanies, and feels the same frustration we do. (Mercury, Little Star, Atlantic, Modern, Brunswick, Mainstream....). But he's willing to Keep a-Knockin' and Rockin' despite presumptve financial returns marginal for his genius.
I spoke to a very famous Studio Engineer from the 1950s who expressed to me via telephone that in the studio especially [e-Specialty?], Richard sang and played every note as if his life depended on it. Even as late as '68, listen to his workout on the Rock & Blues "Baby, Don't You Tear My Clothes", or '71, on "Born On The Bayou". He probably felt that these numbers would not be hits for him, but just *listen* to that committment - to the music, for the fans.
The lady Post contributor has committed to making her observations and feelings known to the readers on Timo's fantastic site.
Keep writin', First Nurse. So will I.

Mercury, Little Star, Atlantic, Modern, Brunswick

Dear Beau, Very well said! Two offensive posts this week. First the one poster that "couldn't speak english well" that made presumptive remarks about someone that is both very dear to both me and Mr. Richard. I do see you referenced that person's label. Richard and the person associated with "Little Star" go back for more than half a century. "little Star" has King Richard's best interests in his heart. And I have to admit that it hurts me that "Little Star" is included on your list. I've been a fan of King Richard since I was a little girl and I would do anything for King Richard go to the end of the world for him.. But I was not even born yet (I'm 36yrs) when King Richard and "Little Star" already had a special bond as anyone can come to conclude after reading Dr. Rock's book. I say it without a doubt in my head, if either King Richard or "Little Star" needed anything they would be there in an instant for each other. So this is not something that has been deprived from the King from "Little Star". This is really something between the King and "Little Star" to discuss because they both have each other best interests at heart. I hope you understand where I'm coming from. I'm talking from my heart becuase I know "Little Star" and have to speak the truth." I don't want Little Star compared to other labels that were unfair with the King.

Like always I enjoy sooooo much your comments. Debbie

Don't worry and don't apologize, Nurse Nancy. Some people just don't understand the impact of seeing the King and his great band perform. Perhaps they are not real LR fans. I'm glad you went to PA. Unfortunately I was not able to go as planned. When I do see King Richard at concerts it's a very exciting experience especially when face to face with him. As much as I try to remain cool, anyone near can tell how overly excited I am. After the experience, I even pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. Maybe it sounds silly to many, but just wanted to share this so whoever posted that garbage before can read this and not post offensive remarks.

Thanks for the emails today. When you get a chance please email me. I'm not sure if your still having problems with your email. I got a new phone, and lost most of my contacts numbers because I did not save them on my sim card. That's the reason I didn't get back to you.Bye for now, Deb

Re. Little Star label. The individual who produced Richard for that co. in 1962 did a tremendous job; nine years later he produced, and co-wrote, possibly Richard's most powerful new single of the decade, and some of his most creative vocals on the album to which it was included, though it appears that a power-that-be may have messed around with the "girl group" level on some, and sped up the master tape.

Main point, though: those labels are mentioned not in the spirit of perceived insensitivity to the creative process or negligence in issuing tracks or making them available to reissue labels, but as entities probably caught up in legal or quasi-legal issues over very old and possibly scattered or damaged tapes; hence the terrible frustration for the fans.

Little Star does come up because among fans because it ranks right up there with Specialty in many cases. And when it was said that a whole album's worth of songs were cut during that Thanksgiving week (?) session, people got excited to think that there's possibly something never publicly heard on the level of "Every Night About This Time".

I mentioned those labels because of my anxiousness to be able to buy the cleanest possible commercial pressing of some very enjoyable and significant material from a time when our Warrior-Rocker sustained by word of mouth on a great live show and good to great records which did not get the exposure they deserved.
