Description by OLDIES.com:

Dave Bartholomew is well known to most fans of Rhythm & Blues for his longtime collaboration with New Orleans legend Fats Domino. It is less commonly known that he had a lengthy career in his own right, actually preceding The Fat Man into the New Orleans recording studios by several years. Bartholomew's final recording for King was his classic "My Ding-A-Ling," which must have had a very difficult time receiving radio play in 1952. Chuck Berry would make it into a million-seller with his version for Chess in 1972, at which time he claimed writer's credits - much to Bartholomew's displeasure! For his early influence on Rock & Roll, Dave Bartholomew was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.

Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Victor Pearlin.
Trumpet player, vocalist, composer, and arranger Dave Bartholomew is one of the true kings of New Orleans music; he is a legend whose legacy reaches far beyond the confines of the Crescent City. He began his recording career in the late '40s with his own band and scored first with "She's Got Great Big Eyes" and "Dum Mae," and continued into the heyday of his prot‚g‚ Fats Domino when he moved toward arrangement and composition -- at the age of 83 he performed and arranged on Dr. John's fine N'Awlinz: Dis Dat or d'Udda album. This Collectables compilation is split between his '40s and '50s sides and includes all the big records. The three previously mentioned titles are here as are "Country Boy," "Sweet Home Blues," "Bad Habit," "The Golden Rule," his magnificent version of "Stormy Weather," the two-part "Lawdy Lawdy Lord," and his signature "blue" tune, "My Ding-a-Ling," made infamous by Chuck Berry 20 years after Bartholomew recorded it. There are a couple of unusual cuts here in "Gumbo Blues," which is a previously unissued master take from the "Dum Mae"/"Dave's Boogie Woogie" session, and alternate takes of his hits "Twins" and "The Golden Rule." While the two-volume Chronological Classics series from France is preferable, The King Sides is an excellent budget-priced collection that includes all the necessary major titles. ~ Thom Jurek
