Produced by Johnny Otis. Album Stronger Than Dirt. You ain't nothing but a hound dog Been snoopin' 'round my door You ain't nothing but a hound dog Been snoopin' 'round my door You can wag your tail But I ain't gonna feed you no more. This song was written by the team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and first recorded by Big Mama Thornton in 1952. In an interview, Leiber explained: Hound Dog took like twelve minutes.
Willie Mae Thornton (December 11, 1926 – July 25, 1984), better known as Big Mama Thornton, was an American rhythm-and-blues singer and songwriter. She was the first to record Leiber and Stoller's "Hound Dog", in 1952, which became her biggest hit, staying seven weeks at number one on the Billboard R&B chart in 1953 and selling almost two million copies. Thornton's other recordings included the original version of "Ball 'n' Chain", which she wrote. By 1969, Thornton had signed with Mercury Records, which released her most successful album, Stronger Than Dirt, which reached number 198 in the Billboard Top 200 record chart. Thornton had now signed a contract with Pentagram Records and could finally fulfill one of her biggest dreams.
Big Mama Thornton - Stronger Than Dirt (1969). Tracklist: 01. Born Under A Bad Sign - 3:44 02.
Big Mama Thornton was a big woman with a big voice, a big harmonica sound, a big stage presence and a big hit record that was overshadowed by the Elvis version. Willie Mae put out further albums with Mercury, 'Stronger Than Dirt' and 'The Way it Is' around the turn of the decade. She continued to work the Festival circuit throughout the seventies, and a sudden burst of recording activity in 1975 saw her release two live albums 'Sassy Mama' and 'Jail'. The latter was recorded at sessions in two north-western prisons, and features a long laid-back version of 'Ball and Chain'.
