I had bought volume 1 because I was a big fan when Fats' records first appeared in England. Once I bought that the Domino effect kicked in. I just had to have Volume 2 which covers 1953 - 1956. If you love real Rock n Roll and want to hear records released by one of the founding fathers before the music evan had a name in Britain, then buy this. Domino rubbed shoulders with the New Orleans greats like Professor Longhair and Allen Toussaint, and was one of the first cross-over stars, the black artist listened to and copied by probably more white teenagers than anyone else. This record shows you why. Sensational singing and piano playing and Fats always employed superb musicians. Listen to the horns and guitar. The beat is like a virus: it is gonna get you. There are thirty tracks, so the CD is wonderful value. No duff tracks, but many standouts. Have a listen to 'Going to the River', Longhair's Mardi Gras in New Orleans, 'Ain't it a Shame and the frenetic 'You Done Me Wrong'. Better still listen to every track and then listenagain. Hear why New Orleans is the City of Music and why Fats has always been a leading musical citizen
