When Domino stopped on tour in Lafayette, Louisiana , he invited Charles into his dressing room, and regretted he did not have a copy of his new record to give to Charles, but invited Charles to come visit him in Domino's home of New Orleans.
Charles replied, "I don't have a car. If I'd go, I'd have to walk. Domino was enthusiastic about the number and made a few modifications to it, including adding a quote from his earlier hit, " Ain't That A Shame ".
Dave Bartholomew made an orchestration for the backup band, and Domino with Bartholomew and band recorded it in Cosimo Matassa 's studio on Rampart Street. After the recording was made, Bartholomew decided to overdub a string section from the New Orleans Symphony. Use of classical strings was unusual for early rock and roll.
Domino was at first somewhat surprised when Bartholomew played back the new version with strings, but warmed to the distinctive sweet melancholy sound it added. Ships from: Amazon. Sold by: Amazon.

The Jamaican ska band Justin Hinds and the Dominoes, formed in the s, was named after Domino, Hinds's favorite singer.
In , various artists came together for a tribute to Domino, recording a live session containing only his songs. According to Richie Unterberger , writing for AllMusic , Domino was one of the most consistent artists of early rock music , the best-selling African-American rock-and-roll star of the s, and the most popular singer of the "classic" New Orleans rhythm and blues style.
His million-selling debut single, "The Fat Man" , is one of many that have been cited as the first rock and roll record. Warm and unthreatening even by the intensely congenial standards of New Orleans, he's remembered with fond condescension as significantly less innovative than his uncommercial compatriots Professor Longhair and James Booker. But though his bouncy boogie-woogie piano and easy Creole gait were generically Ninth Ward, they defined a pop-friendly second-line beat that nobody knew was there before he and Dave Bartholomew created 'The Fat Man' in In short, this shy, deferential, uncharismatic man invented New Orleans rock and roll.
Domino's rhythm, accentuating the offbeat , as in the song "Be My Guest", was an influence on ska music. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. New Orleans , Louisiana , US. Harvey, Louisiana , US. Rosemary Hall. Rock and roll boogie-woogie New Orleans rhythm and blues.
