Esquerita - The Capitol Collector's Series (1990) {Capitol} **[RE-UP]**

Posted By: TestTickles
Esquerita and me went up to my house and he got on the piano and he played…it sounded great. I said "Hey, how do you do that?", and he says "I'll teach you." And that's when I really started playing…He was one of the greatest pianists and that's including Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder, or anybody I've ever heard. I learned a whole lot about phrasing from him. He really taught me a lot."
-Little Richard

The Capitol Collector's Series is a 1990 compilation CD by R&B singer and pianist Esquerita. Without Esquerita, there wouldn't be a Little Richard. Esquerita was passionate about his singing, playing, and a flamboyant live performance that would outdo Little Richard in a major way but while Little Richard would gain the audience, Esquerita would eventually fade out into rock'n'roll obscurity.
The Esquerita volume of The Capitol Collectors Series reissued a whopping 28 sides by the rock & roll wildman, recorded over 1958-1959. These constituted his complete output for the label, not to mention the most unhinged recordings of his career. When this CD was originally released in 1990, ten of the songs had never before seen release in the U.S., appearing only on a double-LP set released in France. As such, it's the definitive look at Esquerita's recording career, and a necessary purchase for anyone interested in what made early rock & roll seem so dangerous. There's never much doubt as to what Esquerita is really singing about on songs like "Gettin' Plenty of Lovin'" or "Hey Miss Lucy," and the wild voodoo-jungle sound of "Esquerita and the Voola" must have sounded like Satan himself was about to storm out of the speakers. Esquerita fans hold that his screaming, howling, piano-pounding antics trump even those of his admirer, Little Richard, but that's debatable. Where Little Richard can kick a song into overdrive with a lung-bursting screech, Esquerita is more apt to slip into a hoarse growl – it's sleazy, to be sure, but doesn't have quite the same impact. Still, that's only a relative judgment – this stuff is crazier than at least 95 percent of its competition. Capitol Collectors Series went out of print, but fortunately Collectables gave its music a straight-up reissue under the new title Rockin' the Joint.
