THROWBACK THURSDAY: These Are People Who Died 2019

UPDATED (sadly) 10:50 am  with Sleepy LaBeef


This is just a little tribute to some of my musical heroes who died this year.

As cheesy as it sounds, if you love their music you can keep them alive in your heart.

Bluegrass great Mac Wiseman left us in February:



March took the sultan of the surf guitar, Dick Dale:



Roky Erikson died in May



Dr. John died in June



In July, Jerry Lawson of The Persuasions, the greatest a capella group in rock 'n' roll history, passed.



Art Neville of The Neville Brothers and The Meters died in July. Here's an early solo record Art cut before those groups:



"Outsider" musician Daniel Johnston died in September:



Later in September, Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter died. This song is from one of his solo records in the '70s.



And early this month, original Flamin' Groovie Roy Loney died. This is a clip with a later Loney band, The Phantom Movers. (And for a whole Loney tribute, check out my latest Big Enchilada podcast.)



UPDATE: Just minutes after posting this, I learned of the death of rockabilly giant Sleepy LaBeef.

A spoken-word recital from the jolly old Legendary Stardust Cowboy



B.J. Snowden, the self-declared "Queen of Outsider Music," teamed up with Fred Schneider of the B-52s for this Christmas dance number

Sliding Down Your Digital Chimney, a New Big Enchilada!

THE BIG ENCHILADA



OK, once again this is not really a Christmas podcast. I included just enough Christmas songs to make you smash your head against the bathroom river, not enough to chop off your own head. Besides, fans of this kind of music got some bad news right before I started working on this: Roy Loney, a founding member of The Flamin' Groovies died. So there's a rocking Roy tribute right in the middle of the show

And remember, The Big Enchilada is officially listed in the iTunes store. So go subscribe, if you haven't already (and gimme a good rating and review if you're so inclined.) Thanks.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: A Belated Birthday Salute to Big Mama Thornton



Willie Mae Thornton, better known as "Big Mama," would have turned 93 on Wednesday. But she died in 1984 at the age of 57.

Happy belated birthday, Big Mama.

Born in Ariton, Alabama she started her musical path singing in church, though she was drawn to the blues of Bessie Smith and Memphis Minnie. Thornton was a hard-living, hard-drinking R&B singer whose heyday was in the 1950s, when she was part of Johnny Otis' Revue.

Though she deserved fame on her own talents, Thornton is best known for two songs done later by other singers.

She recorded the first version of "Hound Dog," written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller in 1952. A guy named Presley had a huge hit with a seriously mutated version of that song three years later.

She also wrote an odd, dark blues called "Ball and Chain" in the early '60s, though it wasn't released until after Janis Joplin, fronting Big Brother & The Holding Company, recorded it and made it famous in 1968. (And in an archetypal story of music industry greed and cruelty, her record company owned the copyright, so Thornton didn't receive any royalties from Janis' cover.

Have I told you lately how much I hate the music industry?

Big Mama outlived both Elvis and Janis, but by the time the '80s came around, the booze had destroyed her liver and her heart. Despite her trademark girth for so many years, when she died, she reportedly weighed less than 100 pounds.

But today, we celebrate her life and music. Let's start with her best known song:




Big Mama knew rats as well as hound dogs.



Here's "Ball and Chain" before Big Brother put it through the psychedelic grinder:



Big Mama recorded this Ray Charles hit in 1969



In 1980, Aretha Franklin had Big Mama as a guest on her TV special. Thornton would have been in her early 50s at the time she and Aretha sang this Bessie Smith classic.

WACKY WEDNESDAY: Cornell Hurd's Comic Country

Just got back to town last night, so Wacky Wednesday is a little late today ...




While visiting Austin, Texas last week, I got to see Cornell Hurd and his always-amazing band for the first time in several years.

Besides his strong voice and tight country-swing group (Cornell eschews the term "country," preferring to call his sound "Texas dance music"), what I like best about Cornell is his songwriting, which is fortified by his sardonic sense of humor. Many of his song titles alone are funnier than most of what passes as "comedy" these days.

It's too bad that I couldn't find "The Genitalia of a Fool" on YouTube. But below are some other great examples:

Cornell played this one (and gave a similar intro) when I saw him last week.



I washed my mind in muddy water ...



This may leave you .... breathless -ah



Mom was ahead of her time



This is one of my son's favorites when he was growing up (from probably my favorite kiddie album by anyone.)




THROWBACK THURSDAY: Where You Goin' With That Gun in Your Hand?

Little known alternative fact: The CIA actually changed the lyrics of a song called "Hey Lee" to "Hey Joe." If yo...
