Big Mama Thornton - My Heavy Load

Guitar accompaniement by the Legendary Fred McDowell...Big Mama Thornton was unheralded during her lifetime... She Was Unconventional. But she made it possible for an Elvis (Hound Dog) and a Janis Joplin (Ball & Chain) to become rich & famous while she languished in anonymity, poor & unknown

Big Mama Thornton - School Boy


originally by Sonny Boy Williamson, As with all of Big Mama's songs, School Boy details the trials and tribulations of LOVE as only Big Mama can soulfully express it.. This one is a total classic, Mississippi Fred McDowell plays a mean slide guitar on this track...
