Nothin’ But a Hounddog

The King is no Big Mama

Print Email
(Tablet Magazine)

But if you think Elvis has the definitive version, you don’t know Big Mama Thornton, who rocked the tune to the top of the Rhythm and Blues charts four years before the King started shaking his hips. Here she is, for your viewing pleasure.
