Recorded live in 1987 at Biddy Mulligan's, a longtime Chicago blues institution that fell on hard times not too long thereafter, Live from Chicago! Bigger Than Life! showcases Big Twist & the Mellow Fellows' strengths in front of a rabidly devoted crowd. 300 Pounds of Heavenly Joy," "Turning Point," and the playful "Too Much Barbeque" rate among the highlights, as Twist's on-stage charisma makes the show go.

Live From Chicago - Bigger Than Life. Why they aren't known outside of Chicago and the midwest is a mystery to me as well as the rest of their fans, I'm sure. Larry Nolan (otherwise known as Big Twist) handles the vocals on a full R&B band with horn section. You only need to listen to "300 Pounds of Heavenly Joy" to know their style of music - powerful vocals from Larry, a solid bass line and plenty of horns thrown in for good measure. Big Twist's enormous vocal talents are displayed on many of the tracks, in particular "I Brought the Blues on Myself" and "I Want Your Love"

Bigger Than Life! Big Twist & The Mellow Fellows. 1 more album featuring this track. Larry "Big Twist" Nolan was the titular leader of the horn-dominated band, Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows. He got his name from his 6' 4" stature, his weight (often in excess of 300 pounds), and his booming voice. View full artist profile.
