Mr. Big Stuff was a huge crossover hit for R&B singer, Jean Knight in 1971. The song spent five weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Soul Singles chart and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart.

FUN FACTS:

  • Mr. Big Stuff  went double platinum and was the No. 1 Soul Single of the year.
  • It became one of Stax Records’ more popular and recognizable hits.
  • Mr. Big Stuff was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 1972 Grammy Awards.

Knight performed the song on Soul Train on December 11, 1971 during its very first season and that’s the video performance I’m featuring today! So 70s – check out how high her hair is! 😀

Enjoy!
