This quintessential release includes Domino’s superb LP This Is Fats (originally issued by the Imperial label in 1957), long unavailable on vinyl. The album is another “Fats” achievement from the late 1950s, and constitutes a terrifically entertaining listen.

Like most of his early albums, this was assembled from a variety of sessions and contains a couple of hit singles. In this case, the smash hits are the opening number “The Rooster Song,” “Valley of Tears,” and “It’s You I Love.” Other album highlights are “My Happiness,” “Baby Please” and a highly personal reading of the traditional “Hey La Bas.” All of these great recordings feature a virtual who’s who of fabulous musicians from the Crescent City scene, including Dave Bartholomew, Lee Allen, Alvin “Red” Tyler, Joe Harris, Ernest McLean, Frank Fields and Earl Palmer, among others

In addition to the original album, this Vinyl Lovers collector’s LP also includes 2 bonus tracks from the same period: the great “She’s My Baby,” and the rocking “I’m Walkin’.”
