“Rock And Rollin’” by Fats Domino - album review

TJR says

Released August 1956 (Imperial LP-9009). Fats second LP in 5 months is led by his recent pop smash “I’m In Love Again” and is supported by a varied and vibrant set of piano driven brilliance which flirts in and out of blues, rock n roll, jive and swing territories. There are 9 originals and 3 covers on this one – “Careless Love” (Ruth Johnson, 1921), “When My Dreamboat Comes Home” (Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians, 1936) and “My Blue Heaven” (Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra, 1927). Good as they are, it’s the originals which steal my affections – on “Swanee River Hop” (ok, not 100% original but he's claiming it anyway) Fats tinkles and rolls his fingers all over that piano like he’s deeply in love with the thing. Jerry Lee move over… let Fats take over! The album closer is equally fantastic – if ever a song was aptly titled then “Fat’s Frenzy” was surely it… with its’ pumping piano and raucous sax it was a suitably dynamic finale to the terrific second album…
