A psychedelic experience, or trip, is characterized by the perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ordinary fetters.

On that same spectrum will be found hallucinations, changes of perception, synesthesia, altered states of awareness, mystical states, and occasionally states resembling psychosis. The word psychedelic comes from a combination of two Greek words: psyche (ψυχή) and delos (δήλος). Literally, it means “mind manifesting”.

“Tutti Frutti” was Little Richard’s first hit record in 1955; with its opening cry of “Womp-bomp-a-loom-op-a-womp-bam-boom!” and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also one of the models for rock and roll.

However, in order to make it commercially acceptable, Robert ‘Bumps’ Blackwell had Little Richard‘s lyrics changed from “tutti-frutti, good booty” to “tutti frutti, aw rooty.”
