What's The Matter Baby
Fats Domino was born on 26th February 1928, in New Orleans, Louisiana, as Antoine Dominique Domino and nicknamed ‘Fats’. Domino’s style of music is drawn from a number of music genres such as Rock and Roll, R&B (New Orleans), Boogie-woogie and Blues. Domino first gained international attention through his song "The Fat Man". The album was released in 1949 on the Imperial Records label (a much sought after rarity as one can imagine).
Fats Domino’s great personality, voice and inventive piano playing assured him a successful career.
Some of the songs he recorded are "The Fat Man", "She's My Baby", "Little Bee", "Korea Blues", "Brand New Baby", "Sometimes I Wonder", "What's the Matter Baby", "No, No Baby", "You Know I Miss You", "Careless Love", "Trust in Me", "Cheatin'", "The Girl I Love", "Mardi Gras in New Orleans", "My Blue Heaven", "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire", "It's Never Too Late", "Goodnight Sweetheart", and "I Left My Heart In San Francisco".
