Editorial Reviews

Ten Top 40 hits including the #1s "Ain't That A Shame" & "Blueberry Hill." Fats Domino's career began in 1949 with The Fat Man, long considered one of the first rock `n' roll records. With his easy-rolling boogie-woogie piano and smooth rhythm & blues vocals, Fats cracked the pop Top 40 thirty-six times and the R&B Top 40 fifty-four times. He has sold over 65 million records, outselling every fifties era rock `n' roller except Elvis Presley!

By George O'Leary TOP 500 REVIEWER on April 24, 2013
Format: Audio CD
There appears to be some confusion with this Fats Domino compilation as the main blurb shows 10 tracks but when you click on the images above to get the back of the jewel case you will see 16 tracks. I have a copy of an import CD released in 1987 by World Star Collection in the EEC with the EXACT same cover but with these 16 tracks: The Fat Man (2:36); 2. Don't Lie To Me (2:17); 3. Mardi Gras (2:17); 4. Swanee River Hop (2:54); 5. Going To The River (2:29); 6. Please Don't Leave Me (2:41); 7. Fats' Frenzy (2:31); 8. "44" (2:25); 9. Little Mama (2:41); 10. All By Myself (2:18); 11. La La (1:55); Ain't It A Shame (2:27); 13. Troubles Of My own (2:17); 14. Bo Weevil (2:05); 15. Poor Me (2:18); 16. What's The Reason (I'm Not Pleasing You?) (2:08).

I can't find the particular CD I have in front of me in Amazon's listing which, I recall, was gladly gobbled up by fans of the R&R icon as there were simply few (if any at that time) compilations emerging in North America. The AAD sound is quite good, but it contains nothing in the way of liner notes other than a tri-language description of the CD format.

Most will recall Fats from his breakthrough (in terms of the more lucrative Billboard Pop charts) smash in 1955, Ain't It A Shame? (track 12 here). But, in fact, he had been around entertaining since the late 1940s and by the time Ain't It A Shame was climbing to # 1 (11 weeks at the top) R&B and # 10 Billboard Pop Top 100, he already had 13 R&B hits in the bag dating back to his first in February/March 1950, The Fat Man, which leads off this album as well as the one I have. It reached # 2 R&B on Imperial 5058 (b/w Detroit Blues), and set him on a long career that would see him register 63 R&B hits and 66 on the Pop charts to 1968.
