When you see the number of hits Fats Domino had over many years it's no wonder that this tribute is a double CD. The admiration still felt for Fats is demonstrated by the stellar cast of artists contributing versions of his songs - Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Elton John, B.B. King, Herbie Hancock, Randy Newman etc. Fats had a very distinctive sound and the downside of that is that it could be a bit samey, therefore for me the best tracks on this CD bring a new twist to Fats' legacy.

I'm not a Robert Plant fan but his two tracks (with the Lil' Band of Gold and the Soweto Gospel Choir) are both fantastic, putting a new spin on the songs but being true to the spirit. Simiarly Ben Harper and the Skatalites do a blue beat version of "Be my guest" which is absolutely wonderful - and perfectly demonstrates the influence of New Orleans R&B on Jamaican music. Lenny Kravitz sounds like Johnny Guitar Watson for his version of "Whole Lotta Loving".

Tribute stalwarts like Taj Mahal, Bonnie Raitt (with Jon Cleary) and Los Lobos contribute their usual high quality offerings but for me many of the 'older' performers like Sir Elton, Sir Macca, Neil Young and Dr. John turn in versions that are too respectful, probably indicating that they were big fans of the fat man. However, honorable mentions also go to young Brits Joss Stone and Corinne Bailey Rae who produce good interpretations, even though they weren't born when Fats had his last hit. (Although I do think that Buddy Guy should have left the singing to Joss on their duet of "Every night about this time".)

This CD is for a very worthy cause and there isn't really a bad track on it - I just wish that a couple of the versions could have been a bit less workmanlike and a bit more inspired.

Intriguingly this double album cover set came out in the same timeframe as "I'm not there", the Dylan covers pairing, related to the film of that name. But whereas the Dylan set had opted for only a handful of recognised names plus a lot of lesser knowns, this set goes the more obvious route of using quite a few big names in order to catch the eye of the punters plus several others associated strongly with New Orleans. Even for the "biggies" the backing often comes from natives of the Big Easy. I found both sets most satisfying probably for different reasons with each giving me very warm feelings about the health of popular music outside the mainstream. While Domino is a well known name, there's not actually that many people who really know his music outside a handful of his numbers, and a cover by, say Robert Plant, on this album, of "It keeps rainin'" is not likely to get that many plays on Radio 1.

As with any collection of covers there are two basic approaches that can be taken, the first being to stick pretty closely to the original but try and retain the feel without being downright imitative, and the second being to take far more liberties and see what comes out. The second is normally the more interesting approach but it's also considerably more risky. Without detailed counting I'd say there are over twice as many tracks here where the artist and producer has taken the second, more experimental route compared with those sticking more to the originals cuts.

Of the experimental ones I'd single out the following as most interesting:

- Both Robert Plant tracks, perhaps surprisingly. In particular "Valley of Tears" with the Soweto Gospel Choir accompanied only by percussion is an absolute treasure.

This is really the first Domino tribute-an earlier one was covers of his songs done at different times.
But here is what had to happen-the version of I want to walk you home by Paul McCartney.
The Beatles were big fans and it must have been in the subconscious of Lennon & McCartney that the 3rd verse of this song goes
"I want to hold your hand
Please let me hold your hand
You look so good to me
Ooo-wee
I want to hold your hand"

Amazing how many triple A artists pay a tribute to Fats and his music.This double CD is worth every penny. A lot of great performances!
This CD deserves much more attention from the media and should be a hit!
