Jona Lewie’s top 10 favourite albums

number 6  ‘ROCK AND ROLLIN’     Fats’ Domino (London Records)         1956



My Stepfather bought this home when I was a kid. In the sleeve notes of the back of this 12 inch vinyl cover the opening sentence reads ‘ Blues lies at the heart of Jazz’. At the time I did not understand what this meant because this was a guy who was also just rocking and rolling.  My favourite track of all time is Domino’s ‘The Fat Man” recorded in 1949 but  it is not on this Album.
