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

TJR says

Released March 1956 (Imperial LP-9004) and issued in the UK on London Records as “Carry On Rockin’”. The Imperial Label was started by Lew Chudd in 1946 in Los Angeles, California, originally concentrating on local Mexican groups and ethnic folk artists. Two years later, Lew began tapping into the rhythm and blues artists in New Orleans, which had been largely ignored by the major record companies. His most significant discovery was Fats Domino, a 22 year old piano player who sang with a Creole accent. In 1949 he recorded a song called “The Fat Man” which became a million selling R&B hit in early 1950. The irresistible template was laid down straight away and the signing of Fats Domino would prove to be the greatest bit of business that Lew ever did. The debut LP serves as an excellent round up of 12 original Imperial sides released between 1950-55. With its healthy share of slow, urban sax grooves it was the sexiest LP that he’d ever make…
