“Here Comes... Fats Domino” by Fats Domino - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1963Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

His first non–Imperial album and doesn’t it show – with none of the notorious Imperial vault–digging, it’s an all-new, shiny-pop sound for 1963. Wikipedia takes up the ABC story: “The label dictated that he record in Nashville rather than New Orleans. He was assigned a new producer (Felton Jarvis) and a new arranger (Bill Justis); Domino’s long-term collaboration with producer/arranger/frequent co-writer Dave Bartholomew, who oversaw virtually all of his Imperial hits, was seemingly at an end. Jarvis and Justis changed the Domino sound somewhat, notably by adding the backing of a countrypolitan–style vocal chorus to most of his new recordings.” There are a few great tracks here, but there’s no doubt I preferred the Imperial vault-digging…
