I've been having a lot of fun with this series, mostly because it's the first time I've seen video of the featured artists performing live. Since I don't want it to seem like men are the only ones capable of rocking, today I give you Big Mama Thornton (in keeping with my string of performers whose names start with "Big"). I don't like to give too much commentary, so enjoy!
I'm sorry about the ad at the beginning of this next one, but it really rocks and is worth it.
