FATS DOMINO R.I.P. 1928 - 2017

Fats Domino‚Äôs children have released a statement after the rock and roll pioneer passed away on October 24, 2017 from natural causes at the age of 89, honoring the rock icon and thanking fans for the “outpouring of love and tribute.” The statement explains Domino “passed away peacefully at home surrounded by those he loved and those who loved him.” “His music reached across all boundaries and carried him to all corners of the world,” it continues, before quoting lyrics from his 1960 song “Rising Sun.” Funeral arrangements are pending. Many celebrities have honored the rock legend, including LL Cool J, Harry Connick Jr., Adam Weiner of Low Cut Connie, Samuel L. Jackson, Questlove of The Roots and more.- Billboard

New York 1975 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Academy Of Music, New York, NY; June 13, 1975. Fairly good soundboard.

Thanks to kingrue for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.

kingrue noted:

The transfer done by Jerry Moore needed some adjustments. The early show’s playback volume was very low. I boosted the left channel +6 db and the right channel +10 db. The late show’s playback was unbalanced. I lowered the left channel -1.5 db and boosted the right channel volume +2.5 db. Now both shows are equal volume. I also re-tracked a few of the songs and corrected a couple song titles. There is a tape stop at the end of track 111, which causes track 112 to start in progress. A little music missing. There is a tape stop at the end of track 202, which causes track 203 to start in progress. No music missing.

  2. BigO, you have outdone yourself this week with near one classic show after another. I have some catching up to do!One of the disappointments of my life was not seeing Fats in concert. He was supposed to close Jazz Fest in 2006 but did not feel up to it and Lionel Richie took his place. I took the opportunity to leave early and go to K-Paul’s for dinner, much to the chagrin of my wife who (and I never knew this) wanted to see Richie and thinks of missing that show every time one of his songs came on the radio. But we will go back to Jazz Fest this May.

  3. Ain’t That A Shame got short shrift here. Only one play, and at 48 seconds? One of my favorites of his. Maybe sore over Pat Boone’s success with it in the 50’s. I didn’t get into oldies rock n roll until very early 70’s. Pat Boone and his ilk, like Bobby Vee and Bobby Vinton, held no interest for me. I started with the early stuff, the Rhythm and Blues, then followed the oldies during the nostalgia craze in the 70’s, when the 50’s and 60’s artists got to reform, tour, and even get some product out there and the fortunate ones got hits again. I was glad for them, redemption is a nice thing, fame overdue.

  5. God bless The Fat Man! Little Richard used to come to town and play for about 15 minutes.

  6. THIS IS GREAT!! Thank you.

  7. Great sound and great show! Many thanks, BigO!

    By Josef (Czech republic) on Feb 12, 2017

  8. Wow! Fats is really at the top of his singing and playing here in the mid- 1970s. To me, Fats is probably the most underrated of the early rockers, so it’s nice to have these fine sounding performances available. Thanks for the post.

  9. Thank you, BigO.

  13. So Bebe ‘was Fats one of your backstage sucks and fucks ?

    By Ule on Oct 26, 2017

  14. Tom Petty , Gord Downie , Grant Hart , Gregg Allman and now Fats , all gone in the span of a few months . Very depressing although Fats passing less than the others . At least he was very old . The others had so much more to give and left far too soon . We music fans are the real losers in this . David Bowie started this almost two years ago and they’ve been dropping like flys ever since RIP all

  15. I need some beat off material, porn videos aren’t doing much for me these days. God, I’m so so fucking lonely and pathetic….

    By Ule on Oct 27, 2017

  16. Thank you so much for this great performance by Fats Domino and his great band (Lee Allen!). I wonder whether it is possible to get the tracks in the Flac level 8 format, which is probably a lot better than the mp3. It’s just for my own pleasure (no commercial intentions at all!).
