Broadmoor was a label Dave Bartholomew started up in the late '60's. It's named after a neighborhood in New Orleans up by Napolean Ave. where it runs into Broad and Fontainebleau. There weren't a lot of releases on the label, maybe 10 or so.
People tend to forget that Fats Domino was the second biggest selling artist of the 1950's, surpassed only by Elvis. And Dave Bartholomew was the man behind all of those recordings on the Imperial label, in fact he was The Man in New Orleans up until 1960 or so. Every Imperial label record made in the city has Dave Bartholomew's imprint all over it.
I'm speaking of the gods here. Cos Matassa has said a number of times that Mr. B and Fats started it all. Of course Cos himself had nothing to do with any of it, he only recorded Roy Brown's original version of "Good Rockin' Tonight" in 1948 and his studio on Rampart was recently declared a Rock & Roll Landmark. Living Treasures all, Cos, Fats, Mr. B., is that clear?
Anyway, in 1967 Fats was apparently between record labels and cut two 45's with Bartholomew for Broadmoor. Just like old times.
In my opinion this the most enjoyable of those recordings. I don't know why, but it makes me smile every time I hear it. Maybe it's just that Fats is so beautiful, ya know? Sorry about the quality of the scan, metallic gold ink on teal is almost impossible to reproduce, it's the same problem I have with 45's on the Alon label. The song is called "Work My Way Up Steady".
Hope ya'll enjoy....
