features in: Album Chart of 1961Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Released January 1961. Unusually for Fats there are only 5 of his originals and 7 covers on this one. Many of the covers continue to dig deep into the showtune well that he’s so fond of with “I Miss You So” (The Cats and The Fiddle, 1939), “Ain’t That Just Like A Woman” (Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five, 1946), “Once In A While” (Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra, 1937), “I Hear You Knockin’” (Smiley Lewis, 1955), “Isle Of Capri” (Lew Stone and his Band, 1934), “Easter Parade” (Marilyn Miller and Clifton Webb in stage production As Thousands Cheer, 1933), and “I’ll Always Be In Love With You” (Morton Downey, 1929). None of the covers are a patch on his own tunes – the enchanting “It Keeps Rainin’” steals the show and a couple in the Rock n Roll ballad style shine brightly – “What A Price” (fantastic) and “Fell In Love On Monday” (really good). He’s still got it… but I wish he’d cut down on the Broadway angle…
