''The Rill Thing'' was Little Richard's comeback album after three years away. Utilising yet another new sound, the largely swamp rock album contained Little Richard's biggest post-Specialty single in "Freedom Blues", which broke the ''Billboard'' top 50, and a lesser success with the follow-up single, "Greenwood, Mississippi", which made the top 90. The title track itself was a ten minute plus instrumental penned by Richard. Despite the success of the two tracks as singles and the inclusion of two cover versions, the album itself failed to chart.
