Where buy Jim Wilson's Big Fat Mama - rockabilly song
May 23, 2010 5:42 PM   Subscribe

where can I buy a recording of Jim Wilson's "Big Fat Mama" - a hilarious hillbilly song from sometime in the 1950's or so that I just heard on WFMU 91.1 on the way through NYC.

The emcee said it's from Dot Records but he's not listed on Wikipedia's list of Dot Records artists. Amazon has nothing on him and the few Dot Records CDs I've found don't have it.
The song can be heard at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XGr5h73ARA&feature=related

YouTube here. This looks sketchy. I have no idea about these folks (scroll down). CD Universe might have "Slew Foot Boppin' Billies," upon which "Big Fat Mama" appears. Raucous Records might have it too. If all else fails, try Amazon for the "Slew Foot" album.

Here, maybe? They ship to the U.S.

Have you tried their site? They have an excellent outsider music archive, all free to download.
