Icons from the world of rock, blues, reggae, pop and country music have joined together to salute the genius of legendary piano man FATS DOMINO for the upcoming double CD set, Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino.
Goin' Home is set for a September 25th release on Vanguard Records. This stellar tribute to one of the cornerstones of rock n' roll music will help raise desperately needed funds for New Orleans musical community.
Monies raised from the sales of Goin' Home will go toward the rebuilding of Fats Domino's neighborhood through the creation of a community center in the Crescent City's still ravaged Lower 9th Ward as well as other Tipitina's Foudation Programs and other community related programs.

King (Goin' Home) and Neil Young (Walkin' To New Orleans).
Goin' Home will also feature the late John Lennon's version of Fats' most popular song, "Ain't That A Shame."
In addition, some of modern music's most prolific artists have contributed their time and talent including Lenny Kravitz, Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Ben Harper with The Skatalites, Toots and The Maytals, Taj Mahal, Herbie Hancock and Bonnie Raitt.
Up and coming stars such as Marc Broussard with Sam Bush, Corrine Bailey Rae and Joss Stone with blues master Buddy Guy have recorded their renditions for this unique compilation.
The participation of some of New Orleans' greatest musicians has been paramount in the process of recording of Goin' Home. Dr. John, Art Neville, Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas, Marcia Ball, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Galactic, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Theresa Andersson, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Rebirth Brass Band and NOLA funk masters George Porter Jr., Zigaboo Modeliste, Leo Nocentelli and Henry Butler.
