5.0 out of 5 stars 67 minutes of pure unadulterated rock and roll November 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It had been far too long since I last sat down to enjoy the music of the legendary Antoine "Fats" Domino. The collection that I owned was a 2 LP volume that I had purchased in the late 1970's. It was an anthology badly in need of an update. Happily, Capitol records has issued a bright new digitally remastered 30 track single disc collection entitled "Fats Domino: Greatest Hits/Walking to New Orleans". If you have never owned a Fats Domino collection before then this is definitely the one you should seriously consider.

What impressed me the most about "Fats Domino: Greatest Hits/Walking To New Orleans" is that it features quite a few tunes from the early 1950's. During this period Fats was pretty much a fixture on Billboard's R & B Singles chart. A few of these tunes may be unfamiliar to some listeners but you will really begin to appreciate what a marvelous talent was emerging from way down yonder in New Orleans. Among my personal favorites from this period are "Something's Wrong" from 1953 and the rollicking "All By Myself" which made a big splash on the R & B charts back in 1955. And of course you will find all of Fats Domino's most memorable rock and roll hits as well. Who can ever forget such venerable rock and roll classics as "Ain't That A Shame", "Blueberry Hill", "My Blue Heaven" and "Whole Lotta Loving" to name but a few. I was also extremely pleased to see a number of my other Fats favorites including "I'm Walkin'", "When My Dreamboat Comes Home" and my all-time favorite Domino tune "Wait and See" from the fall of '57.

Fats Domino was one of rock and roll's most prolific artists during the 1950's. More than 5 dozen of his sides made the Billboard Hot 100 and you would be hard pressed to find a bad tune in the bunch.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Fats Domino collection August 29, 2007
Format:Audio CD
There have been many greatest hits packages issued for Fats but none come close
to the quality and love associated with this one. You get 30 of his best. The sound
quality is exemplary. The choice of songs is excellent. This collection provides you
with the history of one of rock's major legends. This is a must buy. All the
hits are there from Goin' Home (his first single), Ain't That a Shame (his first big hit),
I'm in Love, My Blue Heaven, the classic Blueberry Hill, Blue Monday, I'm Walkin'
to his last charted single, Let The Four Winds Blow. Great collection that finally
pays proper tribute that he so richly deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than great October 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wow! A greatest hits album that more than fulfills it's title. Thirty tracks on one disc and each a bonafide hit. As you may know, the Fat Man, influenced everyone from Paul McCartney to George Jones and it is easy to understand after listening to this album.

I also own the 4-disc Legendary Imperial Recordings titled "They Call Me the Fat Man," but I prefer the Greatest Hits album because it never stops rockin'. The 4-disc collection has some obscure recordings which are interesting and the booklet is very informative. But, obviously it is many more tracks and therefore not wall-to-wall, foot-tapping music.

I wish the Fat Man was still around, sharing his music in person. There will only be one Fat Man, so grab this album and enjoy. You'll be glad you did. By the way, the first track is "The Fat Man."

5.0 out of 5 stars The best single Fats CD to own. An American treasure! January 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I reviewed several years ago, the Fats Domino CD with 20 songs on it. This one is even better because it features 30 and they are all great. From 1950 to 1963, his records were always on the R&B and pop charts with his driving New Orleans band and his carefree relaxed vocals and roadhouse piano style. He was one of the first artists to cross the barrier and bring real rock and roll to white audiences starting with 1955's Ain't That A Shame, which was covered by who else..Pat Boone? Well, in time, teens knew the real thing when they heard it and he racked up Rock and Roll masterpieces like Blueberry Hill, I'm Walking, Whole Lotta Lovin', I Want To Walk You Home, Blue Monday, I'm Ready and more! This CD includes those left off previous compilations like Please Don't Leave Me (1953) Honey Chile (1956) I'm Ready (1959) and others. So if there is only room for one Fats Domino CD, THIS IS THE ONE! Fats Domino was a major contributor to the birth of rock and roll and at the age of 80, still resides in New Orleans and is undoubtedly one of our national treasures! His records just flat out made you feel better and they had the big beat! The sound on these classic gems is excellent! Essential to every collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits May 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of the great Fats Domino for many years and my only reservation in purchasing his and other albums has been the quality of the recordings in the time Fats was playing. I find that some of the old recordings are so notoriously bad that despite the great music I can't bare to listen to them. This was a consideration when I bought this album but I am delighted to say that the remastering has been excellent. The music is all there without the whistles, hums and clicks and does not sound artificial. I love it.
