The sharp eyed among you will have spotted that "Ain't That Good News" by the Duces of Rhythm and Tempo Toppers features a vocal by Little Richard before he hit it big on Specialty. Many thanks to Joan K for these marvelous collections. I'll continue to reupload this series. Many of the LPs featured on Be Bop Wino no longer have functioning links but I will try my best to accommodate requests for new links.
