Dr. John - Behind the Scenes during the making of "Tribal"

Biography

Although he didn't become widely known until the 1970s, Dr. John had been active in the music industry since the late '50s, when the teenager was still known as Mac Rebennack. A formidable boogie and blues pianist with a lovable growl of a voice, his most enduring achievements have fused New Orleans R&B, rock, and Mardi Gras craziness to come up with his own brand of ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It wasn't until Fats Domino's New Orleans house was heavily damaged in Hurricane Katrina that many people realized the great R&B pioneer was still alive. Now 79 and fairly reclusive, Domino had a tremendous influence on '50s popular music, his infectious boogie-woogie and triplet-based piano style forming much of the DNA of rock, and influencing scores of artists from Elvis Presley to the Beatles and beyond. To show their appreciation, a plethora of luminaries from rock, jazz, R&B, country, folk, and blues have united for this two-disc, 30-track valentine to Domino, which features modern takes on his timeless music. "United" is a literal term here--while some performers appear solo (Elton John on "Blueberry Hill," Corinne Bailey Rae on the scorching live cut, "One Night (of Sin)"), many of the tracks offer unexpected gumbo-like "mixtures," i.e., Joss Stone teaming with Buddy Guy and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band on "Every Night about this Time." Occasionally, things stray remarkably far from Domino's blueprint (jazz great Herbie Hancock churns it up with George Porter, Jr., Zigaboo Modeliste, and Renard Poche on "I'm Gonna be a Wheel Someday"), while Paul McCartney goes the other route, offering a too-worshipful vocal impersonation ("I Want to Walk You Home"), with fellow legend Allen Toussaint on piano. Still, fine performances abound, especially Neil Young's "Walking to New Orleans," which seethes with political anger, Lucinda Williams' roots-romance of "Honey Chile," and Robbie Robertson and Galactic's visionary "Going to the River." Almost secondarily, the collection serves as an eye-opening look at the thematic span of Domino's recorded output, and, like his Greatest Hits: Walking to New Orleans, released in August 2007, it should bring renewed awareness of his legacy. The iconic musician suffered more than damage to his house in Katrina--looters stole many of his possessions, including his '50s gold records. Here's hoping Goin' Home… will yield a replacement. --Alanna Nash

Product Description

Icons from the world of rock, blues, reggae, pop and country music have joined together to salute the genius of legendary piano man FATS DOMINO for the upcoming double CD set, Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino. Goin' Home is set for a September 25th release on Vanguard Records. This stellar tribute to one of the cornerstones of rock n roll music will help raise desperately needed funds specifically earmarked for instruments to be donated to New Orleans public school children. Monies raised from the sales of Goin Home will also go toward the rebuilding of Fats Domino's home and to create a community center in the Crescent City's still ravaged Lower 9th Ward. Proceeds of Goin Home will fund additional community related programs. The Tipitina's Foundation, a 501 ©(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving the cultural legacy of New Orleans through music education for the youth and providing programs that support working musicians of New Orleans and the Gulf Region, conceived and executive produced Goin Home. The roster of music royalty contributing their interpretations of classic Fats Domino songs include: Sir Elton John (Blueberry Hill), Sir Paul McCartney (I Want To Walk You Home), Tom Petty (I'm Walkin ), Robert Plant (It Keeps Rainin' ), Willie Nelson (I Hear You Knockin ), B.B. King (Goin' Home) and Neil Young (Walkin' To New Orleans). Goin Home will also feature the late John Lennon's version of Fats most popular song, Ain't That A Shame. In addition, some of modern music's most prolific artists have contributed their time and talent including Lenny Kravitz, Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Ben Harper with The Skatalites, Toots and The Maytals, Taj Mahal, Herbie Hancock and Bonnie Raitt.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Orleans Living, Walking Legend September 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
"For lack of a better way of putting it," Irma Thomas, known as the Soul Queen of New Orleans, said recently, "he's a living, walking legend among us in New Orleans. Between him and Louis Armstrong, they were the first big names to put us on the musical map." Nate Chinen

'Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino,' is one of those CD's where one listen convinces you this is a CD worth its weight in gold. The Tipitina Foundation is sponsoring this CD, which in itself is dedicated to preserving Louisiana's musical culture, will dedicate a portion of the proceeds to the renovation of Mr. Domino's publishing offices. The talent that is found on this tribute CD is memorable with a cross of rock, blues, jazz and New Orleans roots that include B. B. King, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Norah Jones. And they were indeed fortunate that New Orleans legends like Dr. John and Allen Toussaint joined them.

There are thirty tracks on this 2 CD series and as tribute albums go some songs are great, others are fabulous. Some of the best are:

The opening song by John Lennon 'Ain't That A Shame' is an appropriate old rendition and Yoko Ono gave her blessing at the beginning of the project.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers give a rousing rendition to 'I'm Walkin' and it is one of my favorites.

BB King with Ivan Neville brings the NOLA sound to 'Goin Home'.

'Blueberry Hill' with Elton John brings rockin' blues to that song.

Taj Mahal and The New Orleans Social Club are the soul of NOLA with 'My Girl Josephine'.

Paul McCartney and Alan Toussaint's 'I'm Going To Walk You Home' is one of the best covers of the CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great artists pay tribute to brilliant Fat Man. October 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
On this this 2-CD I've found some excellent tracks like Willie Nelson's own style version of "I hear you knocking" and Nora Jones' subtle version of "My blue heaven". But hearing all these great artists doin' Domino's repertoire made me realise again how BRILLIANT Fats' own versions are!

3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to give it 5 stars, but........ October 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up within a few blocks from Tipitina's and was influenced by New Orleans music like the great Fats Domino. I had tremendous anticipation for this release, updated interpretations of these classic songs. Fats could even make a blues number sound happy, but somehow the times seemed to have lost sight of that with all of the angst in music today.

As any music fan knows, when another singer covers an older song, it is supposed to be done as an interpreter. My main pet peave with this collection is that someone told quite a few of these singers to try and sound like Fats as much as possible. There are just too many instances of this to be accidental. Why, oh why, I ask?!!! No one sounds like Fats, and the wisest ones won't even try to sound like him. If I were to let someone listen to this collection without knowing who is singing, I defy anyone to guess most of them right.

Once I got over this initial shock, I graded each song objectively. There are 15 songs or half of this set that I would rate as 4 stars or better. Not bad at all! However, there are enough songs whereby I want to jump up and hit the next track button so as to be an annoyance. Out of respect for all artists who gave their all for this worthy cause, I won't differentiate between the good tracks and the bad ones. However, someone with opposite musical tastes from me would probably come up with similar numbers. For the record, the first CD got a 3.8 rating and the second CD got a 2.7 rating. My girlfriend said that I was being too nice on the second CD.

There is some really great music here and it is all for a great cause, but don't expect a solid 5-star product just because of all the major stars here. Now if they redid it and told all of the singers to just be themselves, then that would be a timeless classic!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Close to Home December 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a kid, I grew up with an autographed poster of Fats Domino on the wall in my living room. It was a prized possession of my parents', right up there with my great-grandmother's vase, and deeply revered. I knew who he was before I knew anything about music. He was more important than Elvis in my house. Along with everything else in my childhood home, the poster was ruined in Katrina. The loss of that poster hit us all hard. When i first saw the CD advertised, I knew it was the perfect gift for my dad, a die-hard New Orleanean and music lover. I was surprised by the reviews I read on the site but I see where it's being misheard. This isn't just a cover CD; it's a tribute. It's an amazing tribute to a man who broke down boundaries despite his race and upbringing. As a man, he's amazingly humble and seems to have no idea how his music has affected people all over the world. This CD is not made great by the flashy, widely known artists (though it is a testament to the all encompassing rhythm of the music). What really makes the CD great are the performances by the local, New Orleans artists- Rebirth, Dirty Dozen, Trombone Shorty, Dumpstaphunk and Marc Broussard (just to name a few). These are the musicians who were truly influenced by Fats and you can hear their love and respect for him in the music on this CD and in their own music.
