Editorial Reviews

2003 reissue after a short absence from the Ace catalog. The Fats Domino on 45 extravaganza continues with 28 more As & Bs with a couple LP cuts. Often issued in sped up versions, this CD reinstates the recordings at the right pitch. 30 tracks recorded between 1953-1956 along with a 12-page booklet that's loaded with more cool memorabilia, photos & notes on 'The Fat Man'.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To say that Antoine "Fats" Domino (born in New Orleans on February 26, 1928) is a legend in the annals of Rock `N' Roll would be understating the fact by the proverbial country mile. When the genre was officially "born" in 1952, or at least so Christened by DJ Alan Freed when he changed the name of his popular WJW Cleveland radio show, Record Rendezvous, to Moon Dog's Rock 'N' Roll House Party and began featuring R&B records almost exclusively, Fats had been performing and recording since 1949 for the L.A.-based Imperial Records, first launched in 1947 by Lewis Robert Chudd.

And from there to 1968, on his way to induction into the R&R Hall Of Fame in its inaugural year of 1986, and the Blues Hall Of Fame in 2003, all he did was find the R&B charts (launched in 1942) 63 times, including 9 # 1s and 39 in the Top 10, and had 68 make the Billboard Pop charts. He never would have a Pop # 1, but he was consistently high up on the listings with 11 Top 10s and 36 in the Top 40, not to mention L.P. and E.P. sales in the millions, almost all for Imperial.

And in this magnificent five-part series from Ace Records of London, with digitally re-mastered sound transferred from original analogue master tapes or acetate, you get EVERY single he had released by that label, in chronological order. Each volume comes with copious liner notes interspersed with vintage photographs and record/poster reproductions and newspaper clippings. On the reverse of the jewel case they show the label numbers and, from Volume 2 to 5, the various chart positions.

As far as I'm concerned, Ace should get the green light to do ALL the original R&R legends because, if there was an awards show for best CD compilations, Ace would win walking away.
