Some readers might also recall the Broadway show "Smokey Joe's Cafe" featuring 39 Leiber/Stoller songs; the show had more than 2000 Broadway performances, and the original Broadway cast recording won a Grammy in 1996.

Thx for the interesting interview.

Leiber & Stoller's first smash hit was HOUND DOG, first recorded by Big Mama Thornton who said in an interview with Ralph Gleason: “They were just a couple of kids, and they had this song written on the back of a paper bag.” And Johnny Otis, who produced the record, received a writing credit on all 1953 pressings.
