Talkin' 'bout Soul consisted of tracks recorded by Little Richard for Vee-Jay Records in 1964 and 1965. All of the songs had been released before except "You Better Stop", thus warranting its inclusion in the album chronology. "Something Moves In My Heart" had previously been included on the 1971 UK released album, Mr. Big, under the title "Every Time I Think About You". This album is essentially the Mr. Big album with one extra previously unreleased track.


As covered on the entry for Little Richard Is Back (And There's A Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On!), Richard recorded nearly fifty tracks for Vee-Jay Records in 1964 and 1965. With the collapse of Vee Jay, some tracks were unreleased until they appeared on Mr. Big and this album so they are included in the Little Richard album chronology.
