July 23, 2105 Records of the Day

Fats-DominoKorea BluesFats Domino is a national treasure whose contributions to Rock and Roll can’t be measured by radio-play and record sales. Among his biggest hits are “Ain’t It a Shame,” “Blue Monday,” and “Blueberry Hill.” His first record “The Fat Man” came in 1950 well before the acknowledged birth of Rock and Roll. Released on Imperial records, a copy of the 78 is worth up to $400.00. His first 45 “Korea Blues” can get you $1,000.00 today. Fats Domino is among the over 65,000 recording artists you’ll find on the “Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide” on CD listing the values for over a million records (albums, 45s, & 78s). It’s available in the left hand column. Also check out our new companion guide, “Records You Should Know About.” Just click on the link in the yellow strip above.
