Offered for sale is a red vinyl copy of the 1967 Japan-only LP Golden Fats Domino by Fats Domino, including the original obi.
About this copy: This copy of Golden Fats Domino is an original Japanese pressing from 1967 (there are no reissues as far as we know), pressed on beautiful red “Everclean” vinyl and including both the lyric insert and the original obi. The “hojyuhyo”, or reorder tag, is still attached.
The record, cover and obi are all M-. Actually, the record is absolutely pristine and shows no signs whatsoever of having been played. It’s quite possibly the nicest example of Everclean red vinyl we’ve ever seen. There is a very small bend in one corner of the cover. Aside from that, it’s nearly perfect.
It looks as though someone bought it, put it on a shelf, and forgot about it for 50 years. It’s a true “time capsule” copy of this terrific LP.
If you’re looking for a definitive collection of Fats Domino, you’ll be hard pressed to do better than this copy of Golden Fats Domino.
Background: Fats Domino doesn’t get the recognition he deserves; between 1952 and 1963 he put 38 songs in the Billboard Top 40, and was one of the pioneers of rock and roll.
We don’t get many of his albums, largely because people who bought them liked them a lot and had a tendency to play them to the point of wearing them out.
This particular LP, Golden Fats Domino, is a compilation LP put together for the Japanese market and released in 1967.
