“This Week in Blues History” aims the spotlight on important recordings, artists, and events from the golden era of the blues. This time, we profile Little Richard — who recorded his breakout hit “Tutti Frutti,” for Specialty Records this week in 1955 — and label owner Art Rupe, who, at first anyway, wasn’t too impressed by Little Richard.
