Fats Domino: Vol.5, Imperial Singles (CD)

(1962-64 'Imperial') (54:46/26)
The fifth and final volume in the Fats Domino Imperial singles series takes us up to 1964, and as usual covers all the A and B-sides and includes a couple of contemporary album tracks in stereo for good measure. The rest of the CD is in original mono and never waivers from the true singles masters as they were issued in the US. This volume covers the period just as Fats was cooling off chart-wise and includes singles released on Imperial after he had left for ABC Paramount in 1963. This is the least reissued period of Fats Domino but contains many gems. The booklet is packed with great pictures, period advertising and detailed information, and is a handsome companion to the previous volumes and completes the set.

1961 had been a good year for New Orleans R&B, with hits by Joe Barry, Ernie K-Doe, Clarence 'Frogman' Henry, Chris Kenner and Fats, but things started to cool off in '62 for our man. It was as if after ten years of hits for him, the gates were swinging open to a plethora of talent from New Orleans and Louisiana. As the 60s progressed this presence continued to be felt, with hits by Jessie Hill, Lee Dorsey, the Dixie Cups and others, while Fats’ star waned, exacerbated by a change of record company and a change in the listening tastes of young record buyers, but in retrospect it’s clear that the decline in hit records was not reflected by a drop in quality.

The sides here include ‘Jambalaya’, ‘You Win Again’ and ‘Your Cheating Heart’, Fats' take on the great Hank Williams, at a time when Ray Charles was changing the face of R&B with covers of country material, some great New Orleans R&B in ‘I Hear You Knocking’, ‘You Always Hurt The One You Love’ and ‘Goin’ Home’, and superb original songs such as ‘My Real Name’, ‘Dance With Mr Domino’ and ‘Did You Ever See A Dream Walking’ – all in all a veritable feast of Fats at his best. Fats’ albums were still strong sellers, and from 1962’s 'Just Domino' we have included ‘Teenage Love’ and ‘La La’ – as they were released at the time in stereo, we have included stereo masters in this collection.

Fats Domino has a larger than life profile following Hurricane Katrina, and he and his producer/songwriter Dave Bartholomew have been honoured by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Today Fats’ name is up there with the great surviving rock’n’roll legends. Now’s the time to complete your library of his Imperial singles. Rest assured, take any volume from the series and you will never be less than happy, and more than likely be ready to get up and dance!

Artist description "Domino, Fats"

Fats Domino Obituary


Like the great Louis Armstrong before him, Fats Domino was a perfect ambassador for New Orleans music.

Even at the height of the mid-‘50s rock and roll explosion, when Elvis and Chuck Berry were scaring the bejeezus out of parents with their primal rhythms and suggestive stage antics, Fats was a cherubic presence when seated behind a piano with a sweet smile on his face and a fat horn section by his side. No wonder he was one of the era’s most prolific and universally accepted hitmakers; with trumpeter/bandleader Dave Bartholomew as his co-writer and producer, Domino unleashed an incredible run of hits on Imperial Records that were irresistible to teenagers and their parents alike. Fats always did the Crescent City proud.

Domino, who died at the age of 89 in his beloved home in Harvey, Jefferson Parrish in New Orleans, Louisiana, at night on the 24th of October 2017, had been ailing in recent years after surviving the wrath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 (he had to be rescued from his Ninth Ward home, which was utterly devastated). But prior to his health woes, Fats never stopped rocking like it was 1957 all over again, always fronting a rollicking band soaked in second-line rhythms and jabbing horns. Domino never seemed like he was just going through the motions; whenever he launched into his raucous set closer When The Saints Go Marching In, it was instant Mardi Gras time.

Antoine Domino

Born February 26, 1928 in the Big Easy, Antoine Domino, Jr. was a shy lad of Creole descent who spoke French before he learned English. Influenced by boogie piano specialists Albert Ammons (whose Swanee River Boogie became one of Domino’s enduring showpieces), Meade Lux Lewis, and Amos Milburn, Fats was given his nickname by bassist Billy Diamond, whose band he played with at the Hideaway Club beginning in 1946. Domino was making a name in his own right by ’49, when he met Bartholomew, who brought Imperial owner Lew Chudd to the Hideaway to check out the promising newcomer. The end result was a record contract that would make immense profits for the label and Domino as it stretched for more than a decade. 

The Fat Man, a cleaned-up adaptation of Champion Jack Dupree’s Junker Blues, was Domino’s Imperial debut and just missed the top of the R&B hit parade in early 1950. Fats achieved R&B stardom long before rock and roll reared its impudent head, scoring major hits with Every Night About This Time (1950), Goin’ Home, Going To The River (both 1952), and Please Don’t Leave Me and Something’s Wrong (both 1953). Everything changed when Domino released the stop-time rocker Ain’t It A Shame in 1955.

Typically a Domino/Bartholomew collaboration, it not only paced the R&B charts but went Top Ten pop despite a Pat Boone cover. Rock and roll was exploding all over, and Fats was one of the rowdy music’s first true heroes. Of course, having a crack band at his behest whenever he ventured into Cosimo Matassa’s studio in the French Quarter sure didn’t hurt. Herbert Hardesty, who was prominently featured with Domino’s band for decades, took the lion’s share of the sax solos on Domino’s hits, with studio stalwart Lee Allen handling the rest.

Domino was a rock and roll superstar

For the rest of the decade, Domino was a rock and roll superstar, thanks to blockbusters that included I’m In Love Again, When My Dreamboat Comes Home, Blueberry Hill (his top seller of all), and Blue Monday in 1956, I’m Walkin’ the next year, Whole Lotta Loving in ’58, I’m Ready, I Want To Walk You Home, and Be My Guest in ’59, and the plaintive Walking To New Orleans and My Girl Josephine at the beginning of the new decade. Domino memorably guested in the rock and roll flicks ‘The Girl Can’t Help It,’ ‘Jamboree,’ and ‘The Big Beat,’ headlined countless package shows that barnstormed the U.S. and helped knock down segregation barriers, starred on network TV programs, and remained singularly free of scandal as he loyally doted on his huge family back home when he wasn’t on the road.

After an amazing run on Imperial (all of his masters for the label are available on Bear Family’s eight-CD boxed set ‘Out of New Orleans’), Domino moved over to the ABC-Paramount label in 1963. But by then, the glory years of New Orleans rock and roll were long in the history books. Domino made more platters for Mercury and Reprise, often recording away from his home base, and toured far and wide as the oldies circuit welcomed him with open arms. Eventually Domino decided to retire from the road altogether, limiting his performances to venues that were close to home.

New Orleans was filled with great performers during the ‘50s, but there was only one Fat Man. Monumentally influential to a generation or two of Louisiana musicians (especially the pioneers of the swamp pop movement), he was the very definition of New Orleans rock and roll—as all the gold records adorning his wall during the pre-Katrina days so eloquently attested.
