Very good! Did Chuck or Fats ever get a Grammy? I mean, other than a lifetime achievement thing?

I don't think so. It seems that the early Rock'n'Rollers' releases usually don't get much attention. Here's what I've found on youtube:

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was oneÖ their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Fats Domino: Iíve Been Around - The Complete Imperial and ABC Recordings (12-CD & DVD)


We could have taken the easy way out. The original 1993 box set was out of stock. We could simply have printed more copies and filled orders.

Of course, we didnít. This is Bear Family Records and we donít take shortcuts. Weíve invested more than 1000 hours in re-writing, recompiling and re-mastering this box. The brilliant engineering by Christian Zwarg will leave you shaking your head in admiration. You wonít quite recognize some of your favorite Fats Domino tracks because theyíve never sounded this good.
 
Weíve found a lot of new material Ė some things that were thought to be lost and other things that nobody knew existed. We have alternate takes that have never before been issued.  Weíve got new unedited and non-overdubbed versions of some familiar Fats songs and newly discovered overdubs of familiar songs. Weíve got the intact recording of Blueberry Hill without the tape glitch. Weíve got previously unreleased backing tracks. Weíve also included some examples of Fats working as a session pianist for other artists (including Joe Turner, Lloyd Price and Smiley Lewis) early in his career. And to show how influential Fatsís style was, weíve included some examples of other performers imitating Fats during his Golden Era.

But the biggest news concerns the Speed-up. Everybody knows that some of Fatsís Imperial records were speeded up for release, making them both faster and pitched in higher keys. But how many of them? And which ones? And just how much were they speeded up? And, in case you wondered, how was it done back in 1955 and by whom? We didnít have as good a handle on those questions when the original box set was compiled back in 1993, and we sure didnít know the answers. But we do now. And we admit, back 25 years ago we screwed up some of the speeds on our original box. And when other companies tried to fix things with their Fats Domino reissues, they made their own mistakes and just added to the mess.

But now the mess is over. A lot of those 1000+ hours went into getting speeds exactly right so we can truly present Fatsís music as it was originally released. But what is completely new here is that we also present, for the first time anywhere, examples of Fatsís Greatest Hits as they were originally performed in the studio, at their original speeds and in their real keys. No speed-up. You can be a fly on the wall and hear songs like Ainít It A Shame and Iím Walking as they actually sounded in Cosimoís New Orleans studio. That addition alone makes this Box a landmark event.

A lot has also gone into updating and revising the accompanying, lavishly illustrated book by Fats biographer Rick Coleman, and by music historians Hank Davis and Scott Parker. That includes an updated Fats Domino Imperial Records Discography. And whatís more, we extended the Box to include two CDs with all of Fats post-Imperial recordings for the ABC Paramount label. Twelve CDs in all Ė an upgrade of 50% from the original box.

Even if you bought the first Bear Family box 25 years ago, Fats Domino: Iíve Been Around is a must for any serious Fats Domino collection. Itís not going to get any better than this.
