This release includes Domino’s splendid LP, Let’s Play (originally issued by the Imperial label in 1959), which was long unavailable on vinyl. The album is just another of Fats’ many achievements from the late 1950s, and is 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, they are the cheerful “Margie,” a rollicking “When the Saints Go Marching In,” the jubilant yet defiant “I’m Gonna Be a Wheel Someday,” (previously popularized by Bobby Mitchell), and the sweet “I Want to Walk You Home.” The rest of this LP also reaches similarly high standards. There are the slow blues “You Left Me,” the rip-roaring “Ain’t It Good,” strong versions of both “Ida Jane” and “Lil’ Liza Jane,” and a variation of Lloyd Price’s “Stagger Lee” with “Stack and Billy.”

In addition to the original album, this Vinyl Lovers collector’s LP also includes 2 bonus tracks from the same period: “So Long” and the great “You Done Me Wrong.”
