Movie Reviews

"A lot of artists just seem to lose their touch as they get older. I kind of expected that with Fats on this DVD set. After all, he IS in his 70's now.
But I couldn't have been more wrong.
From the first tinkle of the piano keys, I knew right away that Fats was back in the house! Even his voice sounded just like it did way back when he was a chart-topper.
If you like Fats' music, you're going to love this DVD! One hit after another after another. The sound is great! The picture is sharp!
With as many hits as Fats has had, it's next to impossible to play everything in one concert. But he picks a great batch of songs from his catalog and he doesn't disappoint!
Here's a list of songs he plays in the "show":
1. I'm Walkin'
2. Let The Four Winds Blow
3. My Blue Heaven
4. I'm In Love Again
5. I'm Ready
6. Don't You Know
7. Shake, Rattle and Roll
8. Blueberry Hill
9. Girl I Love
10. Blue Monday
11. Poor Me
12. All By Myself
13. So-Long
14. When My Dreamboat Comes Home
15. I'm Gonna Be a Wheel Someday
16. The Fat Man
17. My Girl Josephine
18. Goin' To The River
19. Walking to New Orleans
20. When the Saints Go Marching In / Sentimental Journey

This one is WELL worth the price of admission!"
Impressive production

"Sony/Shout has delivered a first-rate piece of entertainment and education: Fats Domino at the 2001 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. We are treated to twenty full performances - the only medley is the closer. In fact, there are terrific renditions of lesser-discussed classics like "Girl I Love" [aka "Help Me"], "Don't You Know", "All By Myself", "Poor Me", and "So Long". The cameras are right there to vividly capture the Hall of Famer at the mike and keys while picking up alot of the happy patrons dancing and singing along. The editing is exceptionally good - most videos/DVDs feature hyperactive camerawork focusing only only what's happening *on* stage.
Informative interviews with New Orleans musician/producer/arranger Allen Toussaint, J & M Studios Founder/producer/engineer Cosimo Matawassa, the Nevilles, Mikal Gilmore, and Antoine himself are beautifully interpolated. The Bio'(s) and Disgoraphy are a little short on detail but overall this is essential stuff."
Fats just gets better

"Fats never looked or sounded better. The band sounds tight and it's a fun concert to watch. If you are a Fats Domino fan this is a DVD you will want to own. My only complaint and I even hate to bring it up, but you may want to know that several of the songs are faded out for personal remarks made by people in the music bizz. Other than that I love the DVD!"
As good as ever

"Only one thing i regret. The sound quality should have been much better. Fats is and will allways be one of all time greatest in American popular music."
