The most popular exponent of the classic New Orleans R&B sound, Fats Domino sold more records than any other black rock & roll star of the 1950s. His relaxed, lolling boogie woogie piano style and easygoing, warm vocals anchored a long series of national hits from the mid-'50s to the early '60s. Between 1955 and 1963, he racked up an astonishing
35 Top 40 singles. "Blueberry Hill" (1956) was probably his best (and best-remembered) single; "Walking to New Orleans," "Whole Lotta Loving," "I'm Walking," "Blue Monday,“ and "I'm in Love Again" were also huge successes.
This collection features some of his best recordings, at a great price!



"Like so many of rock'n'roll's founding fathers, Antoine 'Fats' Domino was a remarkable individualist whose landmark songs and recordingsare timeless gems for the ages.  It's never too late (or too early) to revel in the joy of landmark hits Blueberry Hill, My Girl Josephine and the celebratory Walking To New Orleans."  The Daily Mirror: Standout Album
