    Description

    Fat Domino Group of 17 (1954-62). The legendary piano-playing vocalist from New Orleans charted 66 singles on Billboard's Top 100 between 1955 and 1968, including 10 times with Top 10 hits. Unbelievably, he never hit #1, but his highest-charting record, "Blueberry Hill" is a Grammy Hall of Fame Award winner. Fat also charted 61 times on Billboard's R&B charts between 1950 and 1964, hitting #1 nine times. This lot offers a nice sampling of Fats' work. Also included is a record from Fats' label-mate at Imperial, Smiley Lewis, with the original version from 1954 of "Blue Monday", a song that Fats would later take to #5 in 1957. The grades are NM 8 unless otherwise noted: "Don't Leave Me This Way", "Baby Please", "Love Me" (2 copies), "I Know", "When My Dreamboat Comes Home", "Blue Monday" in MT 9, "I'm Walkin", "It's You I Love", "The Big Beat" in MT 9, "When the Saints Go Marching In", "Walking to New Orleans" in MT 9, "Three Nights A Week", "Shu Rah" in MT 9, "Let the Four Winds Blow", and "Dance With Mr. Domino". Also included: Smiley Lewis' "Blue Monday" in GM-MT 10.
