Little Richard. Tutti Frutti


"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 energetic refrain, often transcribed as "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.[3] The song introduced several of rock music’s most characteristic musical features, including its loud volume, powerful vocal style, and distinctive beat and rhythm.

Elvis Presley recorded the song and it was included in his first RCA album Elvis Presley March 23, 1956. Presley’s version uses "A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bam-boom!" for every verse, finishing the phrase with "bam-boom" instead of "bom-bom". Elvis’ cut of "Tutti Frutti" was also released as part of a four track EP (RCA EPA-747) and as the b-side of "Blue Suede Shoes" (RCA 47-6636) which reached #20 on the Billboard chart.
