Description

"Mr. Big Stuff" is a song by singer Jean Knight. The song was recorded in 1970 at Malaco Studio in Jackson, Mississippi, at the same session as "Groove Me" by King Floyd. Knight's single was released by Stax Records because of the persistence of Stax publisher, Tim Whitsett, while "Groove Me" by King Floyd which Whitsett strongly urged Malaco to release, also became a hit. Both songs are defined by two bar, off beat bass lines and tight arrangements by Wardell Quezergue.

Released on her 1971 debut album of the same title, it became a huge crossover hit. The song spent five weeks at number one on the Billboard Soul Singles chart and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, behind "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" by The Bee Gees. "Mr. Big Stuff" would become one of Stax Records's most popular and recognizable hits.
