  • Running to a mere 2 minutes 28 seconds, "Detroit City Blues" was the first release by Fats Domino; he co-wrote it with bandleader Dave Bartholomew. The song is an ode to the city of Detroit, but was recorded at J&M Studio in New Orleans on December 10, 1949 and released on the Imperial label backed by "The Fat Man." >>
