I don’t think there was a bigger fan of Janis Joplin than I was. But how many realize that she “covered” a lot of songs by a genuine original…Big Mama Thornton?
Thornton also wrote “Hound Dog” covered with enormous success by Elvis, too.

I totally enjoyed listening to Big Mama. I have all of Buddy Guy’s music. Had no idea Big Mama even existed. Wow.
