Hound Dog

"You Ain't Nothin' But A Hound Dog"
Big Mama Thornton

Before Elvis sang Hound Dog there was Big Mama Thornton, in 1952, she recorded "Hound Dog" while working with another Peacock artist, Johnny Otis.

...BIG Mama, sure know how to rock the joint! I just found a great blues singer, Beverly "Guitar" Watkins, I'll have on Saturday at 5 PM eastern this week. Thanks Goergy for sharing your art and this flash from the past.

I like Big Mama's version more. Is that your hound dog? Love his eyes.

Lovely dog portrait, the song is new to me (I wasn't a fan of Elvis)
Have a nice time
