"Fats was the star of the 50s and early 60s. Lots of others had some hits (including versions of his songs), but Fats did it for over a decade, rolling out hit after hit after hit for years. This CD collects two albums (themselves just compilations of his innumerable singles) and two "bonus tracks" that really are a bonus. What a value! You know Ain't It A Shame and Bo Weevil and Walking to New Orleans and Let The Four Winds Blow. There's a reason--they were catchy R&B hits then, and still sound darn good today.But it's the songs that charted then, but aren't in radio play today, that enchant. Forgotten or brand-new...guaranteed enjoyment. You'll be tapping your toes on your first listen. You'll want to be singing along with Fats on the second.Flawless arrangements (it is startling to hear these songs from years before the rest of pop music got this sophisticated) and the pure, clear and solid vocals from Fats combine for a 26 track treat.Not every song is a killer, and sometimes they sound a bit too much alike, but we should be grateful to Collectables for packing so much into one CD. You can choose you're own favorites that way.I've read about compilations have claim to have these songs mastered at the proper speed (implying others do not). Not having the original 45s, I can't speak to that. But they sound as I remember them, and that is better than good."
