Format: Audio CD
A rather crude and populist judgement on the music contained in this set can be gleaned from the chart placings shown on the reverse of the sleeve. All the A sides in the set hit the Billboard Hot 100, with all bar two hitting the top 50. Quite a number of the B sides charted as well suggesting strongly that B sides weren't viewed as throwaways in the Domino/Bartholomew camp.

So the man's recording in this time frame certainly shifted a heck of a lot of units but was this really good Domino music or had he sold out to commercial pressures from his record label? It's true that much of this material sounds more poppy than the man's records from the first half of the `50's but at the same time there's a much greater variety of songs than he'd recorded hitherto and a wider palette of colouration. His blues muse hadn't gone away; it's often present in these songs but hidden under a veil as it were.

What had come in were standards but standards done the Domino way. For many of us, self included, the Domino versions of "My Blue Heaven", "When my dreamboat comes home" and "Blueberry Hill" in particular, ARE the originals - forget any alternatives. He had done the occasional oldie before - there was a very nice version of "Careless Love" in 1951 - but during the second half of the `50's the production team had raised the revivalist approach to an art form. Another thing one notes about this set is the regular appearance of (Antoine Domino, Dave Bartholemew) in the writing credits. And the songs, while relatively basic in structure still have more to them than the twelve bar blues that the pair had started out writing.

In 1956 Fat's Domino announced 'Yes it's me' in the song entitled 'I'm in Love Again'. It was recorded in 1955 but was his breakthrough in Britain and gave many Rock n Roll fans their first taste of the music that white singers were borrowing from. 'I'm in Love again' is track No.1. 'When the Saints Go Marching In' is track No.30. In between there are 28 other stunning tracks including many of his best known: My Blue Heaven, Blueberry Hill,Blue Monday and I'm Walkin'. Domino's Piano and vocals reach across the decades. The tracks were releaseed between 1956 and 1958. Just listen and you'll hear why he was as big as his name then and why so many of these tracks are still played 50 years later. One of the best advertisements for New Orleans Rock n Roll that anyone will ever hear.

Great compilation of the Fats Domino singles that are not always too well known in the UK.
Definitely filled some gaps in my collection.

The Third Of Five Incredible Volumes From Ace Records Of London 20 Aug 2007
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To say that Antoine "Fats" Domino (born in New Orleans on February 26, 1928) is a legend in the annals of Rock `N' Roll would be understating the fact by the proverbial country mile. When the genre was officially "born" in 1952, or at least so Christened by DJ Alan Freed when he changed the name of his popular WJW Cleveland radio show, Record Rendezvous, to Moon Dog's Rock 'N' Roll House Party and began featuring R&B records almost exclusively, Fats had been performing and recording since 1949 for the L.A.-based Imperial Records, first launched in 1947 by Lewis Robert Chudd.

And from there to 1968, on his way to induction into the R&R Hall Of Fame in its inaugural year of 1986, and the Blues Hall Of Fame in 2003, all he did was find the R&B charts (launched in 1942) 63 times, including 9 # 1s and 39 in the Top 10, and had 68 make the Billboard Pop charts. He never would have a Pop # 1, but he was consistently high up on the listings with 11 Top 10s and 36 in the Top 40, not to mention L.P. and E.P. sales in the millions, almost all for Imperial.

And in this magnificent five-part series from Ace Records of London, with digitally re-mastered sound transferred from original analogue master tapes or acetate, you get EVERY single he had released by that label, in chronological order. Each volume comes with copious liner notes interspersed with vintage photographs and record/poster reproductions and newspaper clippings. On the reverse of the jewel case they show the label numbers and, from Volume 2 to 5, the various chart positions.

As far as I'm concerned, Ace should get the green light to do ALL the original R&R legends because, if there was an awards show for best CD compilations, Ace would win walking away.
