I like blues/R&B but mostly the older stuff. I'm not sure how I've never heard of Big Mama Thornton before. I just ran across her and had to go to YouTube to listen to more of her stuff. She recorded Hound Dog in 1952 and it hit #1 on the charts. Elvis recorded it in 1956 and it went to #3 on the charts. Her version is great! I like it better than Elvis's. The video is fun, watching her rock out. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
