Big Beat appears to be one of Hines/Williams’ most prolific imprints running from the late 60s to the early 70s.  Releases are pulled from Mississippi, New Mexico & Chicago so there is a bit of variety represented here.  Note there are a couple of eras here, in the mid-60s Big Beat was operating out of New Orleans.  There are a few 45s on this earlier version but I’m still uncertain as to how many of those Hines was involved with directly.  The Naomi Bradly 45 definitely has the Lynn’s production credit & Hines is listed as songwriter on Why Not Tonight.
