“Let The Four Winds Blow” by Fats Domino - album review

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

TJR says

Fats tenth new music album was released in June 1961. He continues where he left off on his January LP by cutting down on his own compositions – there were 3 originals and 9 covers on this one. It was quite an experimental set by Fats standards, touching on blues, r n b, country, crooner, pop as well as a bit of rock n roll. The rockabilly stomp of “Let The Four Winds Blow” can do nothing other than get my fingers tapping surfaces, whilst his cover of Charles Browns’ “Trouble Blues” sees the big man reinvent himself as a bluesy Ray Charles. It’s serious Fats – and boy oh boy, how I wish that he did that more often…
