Storyline

FATS DOMINO: WALKIN' BACK TO NEW ORLEANS chronicles music legend Fats Domino's triumphant return to the stage after Hurricane Katrina's devastated his New Orleans hometown. Two years after a harrowing rescue from the storm, Domino headlined a 2007 benefit concert for the city, performing hits including "Blueberry Hill," "Ain't That a Shame," "My Girl Josephine" and "Blue Monday" to an adoring audience. The special, narrated by actor John Goodman, captures the concert and provides an up-close, biographical look at Domino's storied career. The special also includes rare interviews with Domino as well as singers Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Robert Plant and Randy Newman, who discuss how this legendary performer has inspired their careers.

Fats Domino: Walkin' Back to New Orleans is a great look at the music legend's survival of Hurricane Katrina and his benefit concert in its wake
14 October 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

During the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster that flooded the New Orleans Lower Ninth Ward area due to the levees breaking, singer/piano player Fats Domino was reported missing and feared dead so when he was rescued, it was a great relief not only for those here in Louisiana but to many in the world who long admired his music and his loyalty to his roots in that particular area. And by giving a benefit concert at Tipitina's a couple of years later, he proved just how resilient he was in continuously providing great entertainment in front of audiences. This documentary of those days and his concert forms the lion's share of footage though we also see black and white footage of him in his heyday in the '50s and '60s as well as interviews of fellow musicians Randy Newman, Robert Plant, and many Louisiana legends like Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas, and Dr. John. Transplanted New Orleanian John Goodman narrated and the program was co-produced by the N.O. public station of LPB (Louisiana Public Broadcasting). Quite informative about Domino's early days and very entertaining when he performs such of his classics like "Blueberry Hill", "Blue Monday", and of course, "Walkin' to New Orleans". So on that note, I highly recommend Fats Domino: Walkin' Back to New Orleans.
