“What A Party” by Fats Domino - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1961Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Released October 1961 (Imperial LP-9164). Fats 3rd LP of the year sees him reverse the trend for covers, with 9 of his own originals taking precedent in the track selection process. Ironically, it’s a cover that takes my fancy most, with Fats excellent moody blue rendition of “Trouble In Mind” (originally done by Thelma La Vizzo in 1924) effortlessly hitting my sweet spot. His own “Bad Luck And Trouble” is cut from the same cloth – I can’t help but thinking how I’d love a full on Fats album in this authentic mean blues style…
