Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino

Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino is a 2007 tribute album by various artists to Fats Domino, issued by Vanguard Records.


In contrast to an earlier tribute album, That's Fats: A Tribute to Fats Domino (Capitol, 1996), which mostly contained previously released cover versions, Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino is (with the exception of the opening track, by John Lennon) composed of newly recorded versions. The album is critically described as "...one of the more remarkable tribute albums to surface in recent years...(s)panning the worlds of rock (Neil Young, Elton John, Los Lobos, Tom Petty), blues (B.B. King), country (Willie Nelson), jazz (Herbie Hancock), and even reggae (Toots & the Maytals, who just nail "Let the Four Winds Blow")..."[1]
