Early Imperial Singles 1950-1952 [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2003 reissue after a long absence from the Ace catalog. The forming of a legend is documented here via the first 14 45s (plus two bonus LP sides, 'The Fat Man's Hop' & 'Hey! Fat Man'). Pre the pop success that was still several years away, this is Fats in the raw. 30 tracks recorded between 1950-1952. Includes 12-page booklet full of memorabilia, photos & notes on the career of this r&b great.
