“A Lot Of Dominos!” by Fats Domino - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1960Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Released October 1960. Fats indulges his penchant for a good croon on this set, aided by an almost constant string section throughout. There are some fine results indeed including the stunning “Walking To New Orleans” and the super classy “Three Nights A Week” which accomplishes the tricky feat of fusing the blues with the strings. His originals are clearly best, his self-indulgent covers are a bit of a hit and miss. The covers include “The Sheik Of Araby” (Club Royal Orchestra, 1921), “Put Your Arms Around Me Honey” (Broadway Show “Madame Sherry”, 1910), “You Always Hurt The One You Love” (The Mills Brothers, 1944) and “It’s The Talk Of The Town” (Glen Gray and The Casa Loma Orchestra, 1933). Fats first new set of the 60’s is something a little different – he remains on good form…
