Indeed, Little Richard's classic recordings are unbeatable. No Elvis, Jerry Lee, Beatles could improve on them.
By the way, Elvis recorded four LR songs in 1956, even performing a couple of them on live TV. One of the first wrong moves in his career.
Plus "Send Me Some Lovin'" on the 1959 home recordings in Germany.
No one sang a Rock'n'Roll song like Little Richard. I think Elvis was a bit brave to take on 4 of Richards well known powerhouse rockers that Elvis' vocals couldn't match or compete with.
