Covers: Rockin’ Chair

“Rockin’ Chair” (1951) is a great lesser-known early Fats Domino song. I heard it first in a version by Professor Longhair. Some of his earlier records are tough early R&B instead of pop pleasers like “Blueberry Hill”.

The Little Richard cover was recorded in 1966 but not released until 2004.

This has “Goin’ Home/Rocking Chair/Going to the River”. The version I know is on Mardi Gras in Baton Rouge.
