This came out in 2003 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):
Singer-songwriter Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup wrote That’s All Right Mama, So Glad You’re Mine and other Elvis Presley hits for which he reportedly got two things: 1) A plaque; 2) Ripped off.
He gets his musical (if not his financial) due on this rustic, rough ’n’ tumble solo album recorded back in the late ’50s or early ’60s, depending on which source you believe.
ON THE MENU: Naturally, That’s All Right Mama is in the set. But so are bluesy acoustic gems such as I’m In The Mood, Dig Myself A Hole, Katie Mae and Rock Me Mama.
SURPRISE: At some point in nearly every song, Crudup inserts at least one chorus of That’s All Right. Apparently nobody told him ‘That’s enough, Big Boy.’
