Product description

Product Description

* The latest entry in Ace's ongoing `Songwriter Series' salutes the 75-year-and-counting career of the founding father of New Orleans Rhythm & Blues - the great Dave Bartholomew.

* Between the late 1940s and the mid 1960s, the songs of Bartholomew and, most frequently, his protégé Fats Domino were never off the R&B and Pop charts. Besides Fats, Dave also wrote for or with the majority of the Crescent City's biggest acts of the period, composing many of R&B and rock'n'roll's most durable anthems along the way.

* His works have been recorded by some of the biggest names in the history of popular music, as well as some of the most obscure. The appropriately titled "The Big Beat" assembles two dozen of the man's best known copyrights, many of which have been hits over and over again.

* As with other Songwriter Series' packages, the recordings used have been chosen to reflect the diversity of Dave's catalogue, and to show how well his songs have long since transcended the era in which most of them were written.

* Released with the full approval of Dave Bartholomew - 92 years old and still going strong.
