5.0 out of 5 stars The Big Beat-The Dave Bartholomew Songbook., 8 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Big Beat: The Dave Bartholomew Songbook (Audio CD)
Fabulous album, it repeats most of my collection but worth the money for "The Monkey" by Dave Bartholomew, (which sadly until now I did not have), alone. Again only for those who adore and were brought up on THE ONLY TRUE MUSIC of my, or any other generation. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Big Beat, 29 July 2011
This review is from: The Big Beat: The Dave Bartholomew Songbook (Audio CD)
An excellent album, and a great tribute to the silent partner in the Fats Domino story. There's not a weak track - unless you count the Larry Storch send-up of I'm Walkin', but a foot=tapper throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars From New Orleans to the World stage, 23 April 2011
This review is from: The Big Beat: The Dave Bartholomew Songbook (Audio CD)
You can assume that the Bartholomew-Domino writing partnership was 50%50-Bartholomew would keep his more risque songs for himself while the Fat Man always kept an image of more wholesomeness.Hank Ballard or Joe Turner he wasn't and no doubt had no intention of following them
Somehow My Ding A Ling just wasn't him for this song which seemed to have had 2 other titles-Toy Bell for the Bees and My Tamboure for Chuck Berry's studio version.
Many of these titles have been well anthologised-I must have The Fat Man a dozen times but the only other version I have is by Pat Boone-surely the most inappropriate song he ever covered!
I'm not sure whether Ace repeated any of these recordings but they include many by other artists like Brenda Lee and Georgie Fame
