TJR says

Released September 1959 (Imperial LP-9065). All new material on this one, with 9 originals and 3 covers. The album gets off to a nice sultry start with “You Left Me”, a jazzy, smoky Fats. “Ain’t It Good” is next, back on the pop blues tip, comes complete with the line “It ain’t what you eat it’s the way that you chew it”… STEADY… The three covers include “Margie” (The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, 1920), “Hands Across The Table” (Lucienne Boyer in the Show “Continental Varieties”, 1934) and “When The Saints Go Marching In” (Paramount Jubilee Singers, 1923). Fats is always at his best for me when he slows it down and burns up the blues – “I Want To Walk You Home” is the cut which dominates proceedings on this set. Overall, his weakest set to date – but a decent album all the same…
