1984

La brindille (the twig) it’s me, 1984 my year of birth. Let me tell you about Big Mama Thornton, great blues and rhythm and blues singer with an incredible voice. Big Mama died in 1984 precisely. Not very known, yet she would be the one recording the first version of Hound Dog, popularized later by Elvis. She is also the author of Ball and Chain sung live by Janis Joplin at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, in an amazing performance. Here comes a little jam session on the harmonica to put you in the mood.
