997: Fats Domino – This Is Fats (1956)

Fats is some original rock and roll. And what’s this? He wrote all but two of the songs on this 12 song album. Just because of that I like this guy more than Elvis. All the photos I’ve seen of him make him look like he never stops smiling and is jolly. His style is straight forward and predictable. Guitar, piano, bass, drums. Him saying the same stuff over and over, call and repeat style occasionally. I could see people going out and dancing the entire time at one of his shows. I wonder if collected Domino sets or if people bought them for him or anything like that. He wasn’t all that fat.

Bottom line: give it a listen
