The Wild and Frantic Little Richard was the second and last Little Richard album released on the Modern Records label. A mixture of studio and live (undubbed – see previous album) tracks, it also contains VeeJay material. Some tracks were released as different versions on 45.
Additional personnel listed in Modern archives as Stax Session Musicians, except for "Baby What Do You Want Me To Do", which is listed as Little Richard's backing band, The Upsetters. Little Richard has said that Jimi Hendrix played on some sessions and songs.
