You aint nothing but a Hound Dog ... with these words shouted into the microphone she will always be remembered: Big Mama Thornton. Who is this woman who sang the megahit Hound Dog before Elvis Presley and who wrote Ball & Chain, the song that catapulted Janis Joplin to sudden fame? The story begins with her first musical attempts in the Hot Harlem Revue as a girl of 14. Then the book follows her journey into the Mecca of Texas Blues, Houston, where Big Mama Thornton met Johnny Otis, with whom she recorded her greatest success--Hound Dog.
