“This Is Fats” by Fats Domino - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1957Album Chart of the Decade: 1950s

TJR says

Released August 1957 (Imperial LP-9040). Split down the middle between new material and sides from the previous years. Two covers on the album include “My Happiness” (Marlin Sisters, 1947) and “As Time Goes By” (sung by the character Sam (Dooley Wilson) in the movie Casablanca, 1942). The album lacks the punch of his previous classics, but the opener “The Rooster Song” has commendable charms and the closer “You Know I Miss You” walks down that late night bluesy path where the authentic black music bars are found…
