Fats Domino was one of the brightest lights of the New Orleans R&B scene of the early 1950s and one of the key progenitors of rock & roll. His music is fun, rollicking, and upbeat, but it's the strength of his tunes that make the music timeless. FATS DOMINO JUKEBOX contains 20 of the big man's original classics, every one a vintage rock-&-roll gem. In addition to signature songs like "Ain't That a Shame" and "Blueberry Hill," there are lesser-known but no less essential tunes included, such as "Whole Lotta Loving" and "Walking to New Orleans." Simple and vibrant, Fats's music has remained relevant and entertaining throughout decades of changing styles and trends.
