Editorial Reviews

Recorded and released near the end of Fats Dominos time with Imperial Records, Twistin The Stomp was Fats entry into the twist market. As one of the artists most responsible for popularising Rock & Roll, it was no surprise that Fats would get around to recording an album of twist numbers, but whereas other artists inevitably copied existing material, Fats came up with an album worth of new material. One of his rarest and hard to find Imperial albums, it showcases the distinctive Fats Domino style to perfection.

We have a lot of material cut long before the Twist broke thru, vital R & B...but decidedly not 1960+ dance beats. So the company changes the original titles to "Twistin' The Spots" and "The Twist Set Me Free" (the latter made the set-list as a previously unreleased real rock and roll blockbuster called "What's Wrong With You?").

What gnarls at my gut is that Fats *did* cut a twist song in 1962 called "Dance With Mr. Domino", later titled "Domino Twist", actually on of the best Twist sides ever released! (from his final Imperial session, in 1962). Guess what? not here.

But...that was typical. King Records messed around with Hank Ballard tracks and "twist-ified" them. Some were great, like "Good Twistin' Tonight" and "Miss Twister". Even ma man Elvis put out a "twist special", "Rock-a Hula Baby" and twisted it up a bit in his movie, "Girls! Girls! Girls!".

Gettin' back to the Fat Man. Looking at this album on its' musical merits, alone > a five. For class > a three. So...

Since it was the last of the Imperial years I figured it's got to be decent. Those were his best years. I have only one vinyl lp on Imperial, but since it is a best of collection it's not a good barometer of the quality of a normal release. In addition to the one Imperial vinyl, I have the "They Call Me the Fat Man" box and I love it. It has a lot of his Imperial material. Fats is one of my all-time favorites. Saw him on a Cavalcade of Stars when I was12-13 and still remember his part of the event.
Anyway on to the disc under review. It has 6 songs that appear on the box. And while the box might not be entirely chronological, it tends to go from 1949 to 1962 for the most part. This is important since 3 of the 6 songs I referenced are on disc one indicating that they are from years before the 1962 original release of this lp. Perhaps they had never been released before but it belies this disc being an album of new material as boasted.
When this started off with an instrumental it had me concerned that it all would be. Fortunately, that is not the case. Still this disc is inferior Domino material for the most part. One song from the box, "Wait and See" is the most representative of Fats. It slips after that.
I have to conclude that this is not worth purchasing. Only Fats fans would even consider it and they would probably have the box. For Imperial Fats you need nothing more.
