Editorial Reviews

This is the fifth and last volume in our Fats Domino singles series, covering all his A & B sides. This CD covers the final Imperial period just as Fats was cooling off chartwise and includes the final Imperial 45s issued after he left Imperial for ABC-Paramount. This body of Fats' work is the least reissued period of all, but contains many gems.

In addition we've included two excellent bonus tracks from 1963, following on from the tradition set up on Volumes 1 and 2 only available on his Just Domino LP.

Fats Domino has a bigger profile than ever following Hurricane Katrina. He and Dave Bartholomew were honored by the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in November 2011. Today Fats' name is up there with the great surviving exclusive members' club of rock 'n' roll legends. In fact, Fats Domino could be considered for the role of original rock 'n' roller.

His The Fat Man was a hit record in 1950, and this series has happily followed each and every Imperial single released by Fats until 1964. Fans of the first four in the series will not want to miss this last volume.

IF your looking for chart busters top 20 or even top 40, you wont find them on this cd.
JOSEPH F. JULIAN
Perhaps they will one day compile a volume containing all his ABC-Paramount singles as well as those Reprise and Warner cuts.

I had to rate this cd a 5 because there was no fillers on this album it was simply great.

Ever notice that almost all - check that - every single chronological CD collection ends at 1962? Everly Bros., Hank ballard and the Midnighters, Pat Boone, Frankie Lymon, The Platters...? I used to look at lists of Elvis' gold records, always to "Good Luck Charm" and 1962.

Is it that CD compilers simply keep the old dudes in that well-formatted box, "pre-Beatles"? And so, "Hum Diddy Doo" Imperial 59509 and "When I Was Young" Imperial 66016, missed heavy rotation. Or missed the audition phase to begin with!

What other record company but Ace could take us into that "brave new world" of classic rock..right!...when the R & R originators supposedly went into hibernation. well, they kept grindin', well into that Mersey Beat era, with an amazing bunch of shouldabeen top 40ies.

Here we have the final Fats singles, you know the titles, many of which you might say, after playing just once and lookin' up the Billboard, Cash Box, and New Musical Express, Record Retailor... man, I love this! It got no airplay? What?

Ace is still the place! Best possible sound..best possible annotation.

La-la, la-la-la-la-la............... [yes, that one's here, too!]

I had to rate this cd a 5 because there was no fillers on this album it was simply great. I love Fats Domino he is so good and every song on this album in my opinion was a hit although some i never heard on the radio maybe a b side i don't know but i found no song on this cd to be a fill in. If you liked Fats Domino i would highly recommend this cd to everyone. I have also orderd others by Fats because he had so many songs out that i never heard and i am trying to get most if not all his songs he recorded. These are songs i was not that familar with not like the ones we all know like I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday, Walk You Home, Blueberry Hill etc that we have all heard but these other recordings are great also and they are definitely toe tapping and beautiful ballards none other than Fats could do.

IF your looking for chart busters top 20 or even top 40, you wont find them on this cd. Because if you didn`t live in the deep south when these records were released there`s a good chance they never made it to the turntable of your favorit radio station. All that being said, this is a must have for all fans of Fats Domino. The recordings are all of excellant sound quality. They might not be big hits but just to here them once again is to enjoy them. so if you want to sit back and for nearly an hour listen to some of that good time rock and roll from the one and only Fats Domino. Break open that piggy bank and send for this cd.

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.

In this fifth and last volume in the series, which covers 1962 to 1964, you get his final chart entry for Imperial (Did You Ever See A Dream Walking?
