“Rip It Up” was the third Little Richard single to reach yhe BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart following in the footsteps of “Tutti-Fruitti” and “Long Tall Sally.”
Released during the early spring of 1956, it reached number 17 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. Its flip side, “Ready Teddy,” was another frenetic rocker.
It was another high octane performance that helped define early rock ‘n’ roll. If you want to visit this old blast from the past, turn the sound up real loud, sit back, and let the sound take you away.
