Not the best of Big Mama,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hound Dog - The Essential Collection (Audio CD)
I agree with one previous reviewer that this collection has quite a bit of repetition regarding 'Hound Dog' but I don't agree that this repetition doesn't detract from the overall quality. In my opinion it does. Hound Dog is a great record and, with apology to Elvis, Big Mama recorded the best version, but this doesn't excuse 6 other tracks being similar and, in two cases, copies. Big Mama has a much more varied back-catalogue than this CD suggests and there are many tracks that could have been used instead to give the list more depth. Big Mama is a great performer however and her music is always worth listening to.
