Although he began recording in 1949, New Orleans piano player Fats Domino didn't capture broad attention until 1955, when his classic "Ain't That a Shame" crossed over onto the pop charts. With his relaxed (but driving) piano style and his easy, warm vocals, Domino had several hits over the next decade, including his signature song, "Blueberry Hill." "I'm Walkin'," "Walking to New Orleans," and "I Want to Walk You Home" (Fats was big on walking) are also collected here, but this is a woefully short compilation, and more comprehensive single-disc sets are available.
