Fats Domino – The First King of Rock and Roll, Vol. 1 CD


Original ABC Paramount recordings… New Orleans-born Antoine “Fats” Domino is the subject of this 32-track salute issued in 2007 by CSP records. This collection draws upon three LPs: ABC’s Here Comes Fats (1963) and Fantastic Fats (1964), as well as Paramount’s Getaway with Fats Domino (1965). A pioneer of rock & roll during the 1950s, Domino spent the mid-’60s dishing out his own brand of popular music, garnished at times with contemporary production tropes including backup vocals that convey a sugary nostalgic charm. What you get here is primo easygoing music for walking, driving, cooking, cleaning, goofing off, kicking back, and feeling good. Also available is THE FIRST KING OF ROCK AND ROLL, VOL. 2. Released in 2007, 32 tracks.
