Big Mama Thornton - Hound Dog

You ain’t nothing but a hound dog (x)

The original FUCK Elvis!

You heard it right. Elvis stole the song from her and got all the credit.

White artists stealing black art and  sterilizing it for white audiences is nothing new. 

Hound Dog" is a twelve-bar blues song by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It was recorded by Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton on August 13, 1952 in Los Angeles and released by Peacock Records in February 1953. “Hound Dog” was Thornton’s only hit record, spending 14 weeks in the R&B charts, including seven weeks at #1. Thornton’s recording of “Hound Dog” is listed as one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's “500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll”, and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in February 2013.

"Hound Dog" has been recorded more than 250 times. The best-known version of "Hound Dog" is the July 1956 recording by Elvis Presley, which is ranked No. 19 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time; it is also one of the best-selling singles of all time.

Once Everything Was Much Better Even The Future
 Nir Hod

Paul Kasmin Gallery, 515 W27th St., NYC

exhibition of painting and sculpture features a large sculptural work, a snowglobe containing a moving scale model of a pumpjack encased in oil and swirling “snow” comprised of gold-colored flakes, a reflection of the immense wealth generated by the oil trade. Characteristic of Hod’s work is a dark glamour that is both alluring and menacing, exemplified in his three new series of paintings. In I Want Always to be Remembered in Your Heart, smoldering flames are superimposed on delicate flowers, alluding to the paradoxical coexistence of beauty and destruction. - thru Oct 25
