Little Richard had had over a dozen hits, 1955-1957. 1958 started off well with “Good Golly Miss Molly” but “Oh My Soul” proved to be the last top 40 hit of his career when it reached number 31 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
If Elvis had worried parents of 1950s teenagers, then Little Richard scared them to death.
Just about all of his releases were high-octane fueled rock and roll and maybe that fact hurt him in the long run. Any of his compilation albums are worth seeking out. “Ooh My Soul” may not be one of his more memorable songs but it is the equal to any that are in his catalogue.
