While "Bluegrass" was named for Bill Monroe, he learned the craft from his Uncle Pendleton Vandiver, a crippled civil war vet fiddler. They lived together in a two-room log cabin after the death of Monroe's parents, and he passed his music to Monroe, who in-turn bequeathed it on his passing. Some 52 years after Pendleton's death, Ricky Skaggs' cover of Monroe's song memorializing "Uncle Pen" shot to #1 on the Country Music Charts. Monroe played the part of his uncle in the music video.

Recorded at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in the fall of 1966, Etta James had to be convinced by FAME's Rick Hall to even sing "Tell Mama". It was a response song to Clarence Carter's "Tell Daddy".

Released as a single the following October, with I'd Rather Go Blind as the B Side, "Tell Mama" was a hit! Peaking at Number 10 on the R&B chart. Janis Joplin quickly & famously adopted James' tune into her repertoire.
