Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Big Mama's thunderous smash version of the Lieber & Stoller title tune leads off this collection of her 1952-58 Peacock singles. Get down as she tears up I Smell a Rat; Yes, Baby; They Call Me Big Mama; Rock-A-Bye Baby , and more!
The classic "Hound Dog" is usually associated with Elvis Presley, but blues fans know: Presley's recording wasn't the first. That honor belongs to singer Big Mama Thornton, whose own recording of "Hound Dog" was eclipsed by Presley's. Her version is on this collection in all its glory, opening a CD of 17 killer tracks. Thornton's voice, by turns growling and richly melodic, was indeed unusual, and the spare accompaniment on Hound Dog makes it stand out all the more on songs such as "They Call Me Big Mama," "How Come," "The Big Change," "Hard Times," and "The Fish." Thornton had talent and attitude to spare, and both come through loud and clear on this essential collection. --Genevieve Williams
