    Big Mama Thornton
    The Story of My Blues - Complete Singles As & Bs 1951-1961 CD

    This is the first collection to feature the A & B sides of all the singles Big Mama Thornton released between 1951 and 1961 - 28 excellent R&B tracks!
    Willie Mae 'Big Mama' Thornton was the first artist to record the then little known song written by two Los Angeles based teenagers, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Hound Dog.
    The song was the only chart record that Big Mama enjoyed and of course it went on to be recorded by a young Elvis Presley who took the track to No.1 on the charts for 11 weeks.
    Booklet includes fully detailed liner notes.
