The Down Home Shake Down! – Big Mama Thornton

Big Mama Thornton and the gang… I’m in love.


Holy crapolahs peoples! Big Mama is back!! It’s got harmonicas, a beat and a strummin’ bass and it makes you want to get moving. The flat-footing days of the south have been preserved for our era… And I’m loving it!

I tell you what, if I could go back in time, I would go back to the days of this kind of music! So freakin’ awesome.

I love this Down Home Shake Down because of Big Mama’s voice in the background – it makes chills go down your spine.

If you want to feel like dancing, I strongly shove you in the direction to watch this:

You don’t have to thank me. Thank the Mama, Dr. Ross, Shakey Horton, John Lee Hooker and the other AMAZING musicians of this genre and time for making incredible, outstandingĀ  and really, really cool music.
