10567 1964 Record information:

fats was born antoine domino in 1928 in new orleans. as a child his brother-in-law, who was twenty years his senior, taught him to play the piano. fats also sang in the first language he learned to speak french. he first performed in public at age 10. at fourteen he left school and worked days in a factory so he could perform at local nightclubs. he continued with music into the 40's and was heard by dave bartholomew, who would become his writing partner on many of fats' hit songs. fats joined the dave bartholomew band in the mid-40's. he was influenced by albert ammons and fats waller, among others. he signed a contract with imperial in 1949 and at his first recording session he made sure that he recorded the traditional hey la bas. "la bas" was originally a voodoo god of luck, it was identified with st. peter in french-catholic louisiana and finally became la bas. the record indicated a coming together of many years of new orleans history and musical influence. it was not, however, his first record to be released. a song about drugs called the fat man was cleaned up a bit for his first commercial release, and it reached the r&b chart in 1950. domino moved to abc-paramount records in 1963. the label dictated that he would record in nashville rather than new orleans. he was assigned a new producer (felton jarvis) and a new arranger (bill justis). domino's long-term collaboration with producer/arranger/frequent co-writer dave bartholomew, who oversaw virtually all of his imperial hits, was seemingly at an end. he released 11 singles for abc-paramount he released this r&b track in 1964 packin up (abc paramount 10567) the flip to mary, oh mary.

fats domino still lives in new orleans with his wife rosemary, with whom he has had eight children. his awards have been many, including grammy's lifetime achievement. fats domino took his place in the rock and roll hall of fame 1986.
