R.I.P. Richard I. Penniman. The I stands for "I made rock and roll great!"

This is great. The reason the Beatle version sounds better to a lot of people (me included) is the same reason that their versions of Roll Over Beethoven and other covers sound better: they had the advantage of a few years' progress in the art of rock and roll. Little Richard's version is just a swing-band with a rock n roll singer. The Beatles have a full-on driving rock n roll band (with a rock n roll singer). They also have the electric bass and a 4-beat rhythm instead of the 2-beat thump-a-thump-a thing that Richard has, so the Beatle version knocks you over with more power and drive.

Roll Over Beethoven is a Chuck Berry song with a rock n roll band behind it, he’s playing lead guitar, what George plays on the cover. But yea ur right on everything else

I like this version better. It has way more soul and his voice sounds like a saxophone.

Steve Duarte, you pinned it. I think people prefer the Beatles' cover because that's what they're most familar with. They're not used to this earlier instrumental style and I wonder if they just don't hear black rock singers much. I like the Beatles' original music a lot, but their covers are basically early stuff for them, before they really got going.
