 Fats' original "lazy" version. Had to be heard on a 1950s jukebox with heaps of bass. You had to be there.

 'Grow too old' is one of my fave late Fats records. Dunno what it is about it, it's just a masterpiece. No more to be said really.

 "Before I Grow Too Old" was always one of my very favourite Fats Domino records. I guess I just like songs written by Bobby Charles (my favourite Etta James track is "The Jealous Kind" also written by Charles). Interesting tho that this U.K. issue shows Fats (the bigtime artist) and Dave Bartholomew (the wheeler-dealer arranger) have snaffled the song completely. The U.S. issue has Robert Guidry (aka Bobby Charles) as third writer and I guess it was registered that way with the Library Of Congress so Bobby would have got a third of the royalties from U.S. sales, but did he dip out completely outside America?
