The most popular exponent of the classic New Orleans R&B sound, Fats Domino sold more records than any other black rock & roll star of the 1950s. His relaxed, lolling boogie-woogie piano style and easygoing, warm vocals anchored a long series of national hits from the mid-’50s to the early ’60s. Through it all, his basic approach rarely changed. He may not have been one of early rock’s most charismatic, innovative, or threatening figures, but he was certainly one of its most consistent.

Domino’s first single, “The Fat Man” (1949), is one of the dozens of tracks that have been consistently singled out as a candidate for the first rock & roll record. As far as Fats was concerned, he was just playing what he’d already been doing in New Orleans for years, and would continue to play and sing in pretty much the same fashion even after his music was dubbed “rock & roll.”
