Big Mamma Thornton sings her song, Hound Dog backed up by the incomparable, Buddy Guy!
Live in 1965
She wrote it, y'all...
Thank You Dennis, for clarifying the writing credits,
of course it was Lieber and Stoller, those two white guys who had were able to channel the power of the blues and early rock so accurately.  I remembered that it was them when I was in bed and too lazy to get up and change it.

Very good. I saw Buddy Guy in 1965 (he was fantastic), but I never saw Big Mama Thornton.

However, I should point out that Hound Dog was written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and Big Mama merely claimed a composing credit on the basis of her random vocalizations during the guitar solo.
