Thornton Big Mama- They Called Me Big Mama-A PROPER introduction
[ Intro2078 ]
Price: $5.00

The incredible PEACOCK label sides from the early days!!!! Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton only notched up one national hit in her lifetime, but it was a true monster. "Hound Dog" held down the top slot on Billboard's R&B charts for seven long weeks in 1953. Thornton's menacing growl was indeed something special. The hefty belter first opened her pipes in church but soon embraced the blues. Thornton was ensconced on the Houston circuit when Peacock Records boss Don Robey signed her in 1951. She debuted on Peacock with "Partnership Blues" that year, backed by trumpeter Joe Scott's band. But it was her third Peacock date with Johnny Otis's band that proved the winner. With Pete Lewis laying down some truly nasty guitar behind her, Big Mama shouted "Hound Dog", a tune whose authorship remains a bone of contention to this day (both Otis and the team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller claim responsibility), and soon hit the road a star. This Proper Intro presents the best of her work. 1. All Right Baby 2. Bad Luck Got My Man 3. Partnership Blues 4. Mischevious Boogie 5. I'm All Fed Up 6. Cotton Pickin Blues 7.
