    While Allen Toussaint and Wynton Marsalis came to represent the public face of the New Orleans cultural revival after Hurricane Katrina, it was Fats Domino who may have provided the most inspiration for the troubled city. A lifelong resident of the famous Lower Ninth Ward, Domino was feared dead when his whereabouts were unknown following the disaster. Thankfully, Domino survived, insuring that far more than just his memory would serve to inspire the people of the Crescent City.
    GOIN' HOME, a star-studded tribute to the Fat Man, arrived during the second anniversary of Katrina, and featured the likes of Tom Petty, BB King, Elton John, Willie Nelson, and Robert Plant taking on a host of Domino classics. Stand out tracks include a ska-tinged "Let the Four Winds Blow" from Toots and the Maytals, Robert Plant's gentle, slow-burning "It Keeps Raining," Neil Young's surprisingly lush "Walkin' to New Orleans," and Irma Thomas and Marcia Balls's funky, defiant "I Just Can't Get New Orleans Off My Mind." GOIN' HOME was released by Tipitina's Foundation with all proceeds going to the music programs of local public schools.

  • Critic Reviews
    Uncut (p.113) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] performances that are uniformly affectionate, honouring the material....That makes Randy Newman's 'Blue Monday' a revelation..."
    Dirty Linen (pp.53-54) - "[The album] showcases a host of great New Orleans talent, while touching on nearly all the great New Orleans styles and featuring a raft of classic songs that have now seeped into the general consciousness but were first Domino hits."
