albums: Fats Domino Rock and Rollin’ / This Is Fats Domino

Fats Domino. Rock and Rollin’ / This Is Fats Domino. Collectables COL-CD-2721, 1998 (originally released 1956 as two albums). (on CD)

Filled a gaping hole in my music collection. I’d only previously been familiar with “Blueberry Hill,” and liked it enough that I knew I needed some Fats Domino CDs. Turns out, his worst tracks are at least as good as “Blueberry Hill.” He doesn’t quite have anything to compete with the very best from artists like Bo Diddley or Elvis (although he gets close), but those guys recorded a half dozen mediocre songs for every great one; with Domino, everything’s great.

9/10 (One of my favorites).
