Liner Note Author: Marv Goldberg.
This two-for-one disc features many of Domino's best-known singles including "I'm in Love Again," "Blue Monday," and his most popular hit, "Blueberry Hill." Decades removed, Domino's voice still sounds refreshing and dynamic. Even when he delivers a gloomy lyric like "Blue Monday," he sings it with the type of rare enthusiasm that is both charismatic and heartwarming.
One of Domino's most important songs is "The Fat Man." This tune is considered by some rock historians to be one of the first rock & roll songs ever penned. It was also Domino's earliest hit. This simple boogie-woogie tune is heard here in its original form, with the shuffle rhythms of the piano echoing the blues, while the song's energy and urgency adds the distinctively rock & roll element. If you want to hear the roots of rock music, they're right here.
