Big Mama Thornton - Jail

No time for hyperbole, once again, so have this gritty live album culled from performances at two different southern prisons. Big Mama was the originator of both "Hound Dog" and "Ball and Chain" but, unsurprisingly, much less famous than Presley or Joplin. Such is the way of the world.
Get your head on right.
