I've only played bits of it, but it reminds me of how dynamic Richard was on the 1992 tour (compare it to audios of Jerry from that ...).

I first really got into rock 'n' roll around 1977/1978, aged 15/16, and over the coming decade got to see Jerry Lee Lewis (of course), Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, etc, but throughout that time never thought I'd see Little Richard. So I was amazed when I finally did see him how his voice and stage act was pretty much the same as I'd watched dozens of time in 'Keep On Rockin'' (1969) and 'The London Rock & Roll Show' (1972). Unforgettable memories!

Peter “I first really got into rock 'n' roll around 1977/1978, aged 15/16” For me I was just coming into music about 1961 - Helen Shapiro (good voice) Craig Douglas & least of all Russ Conway -my mates were into these people! Although, I was just a kid I knew they were, XXXX. Thankfully my despair was not to last for my wonderful auntie Grace gave me a load of 78’s. I was in heaven Fats Domino, Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee, Little Richard I could hardly believe how great these and other artists were -also a load of R&R crap, by the way. Antoine, Jerry lee and Richard were the three that stood out, for me. All three have not only stood the test of time, time as allowed us to see their true genius
Just in case anyone hasn’t seen Little Richard inducting Otis Reading into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame -it’s simply wonderful.
