Big Mama Thornton - The Essential Recordings (CD)

The Essential Recordings
Not Currently Available
This collection celebrates the career of a true R&B and rock '€˜n'€™ roll pioneer, and one who Janis Joplin recognised as a role model, not only as a singer, but in her uninhibited attitude to expressing her sexuality.

She was known for her tough, uncompromising demeanour, her powerful, soulful voice, drank heavily, and was unafraid to dress in men'€™s clothing.
