2003 reissue after a short absence from the Ace catalog. The chronological anthologizing of all the As & Bs of Fats' 45s for Imperial reaches Vol. 3 & an incredible run of hits. All the A-sides here charted & most of the Bs made a showing too. This is when the fat man was king. 30 tracks recorded between 1956-1958 with UK & US chart positions & a 12-page booklet with even more cool memorabilia & photos.
Ace Should Be Allowed To Do ALL The Original Masters Of R&R
(5 out of 5 stars)
"There is no better distributor of the Golden [and Mouldy] Oldies out there than Ace Records of London. From their quality sound reproduction to their meticulous research, reflected in some of the best liner notes you will ever read [in this instance four pages by Rick Coleman, author of the Fats Domino biography Blue Monday], their products are not to be missed.
As always, mixed in the the notes are some fantastic photographs and album/45rpm/poster reproductions, and on the reverse you get a complete discography of the contents, even to the point of mentioning the films in which some selections first appeared.
If the Fats Domino singles are what you are searching for, look no further than this series. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. If only Ace could get the green light to do ALL the original R&R masters."
