Richard wished at the time Okeh would not release this album as it favored horns over rhythm. In hisbiography he noted page "I was in the second year of the Okey sic contract and there was still no hit record.
So I tore it up. The contract gave me no say in the material I recorded with them or in what was released. Larry Williams was the worst producer in the world. He wanted me to copy Motown and I was no Motown artist. I should have recorded on the Epic label, because I'm not primarily a black artist. It would have done a lot better. All Okeh 45's are highly regarded in Europe where they were released on the Epic label. The Brunswick tracks were released between December '67 - September '68, none of which were hits.
Meanwhile, Little Richard saw out with an appearance in Little Richard - Little Richards Greatest Hits Recorded Live film Catalina Caper. From this point on Richard was out of the recording The Colors Of My Life (Reprise) - Jim Dale - Barnum (The New Musical), not returning until March with the Reprise Records label.
