Mr Big Discography
- the Epic years (1974-1975) -

Mr Big released their debut single "Eee I'm All Right" b/w "I Ain't Been A Man" in July 1974. It was issued on Epic Records - but in a press release published a month earlier, Epic listed a song called "Genevieve" as the A-side, and this has puzzled discographers for years.

Comment from Dicken: The first song we actually recorded with Mr Big was a song called "Memory Lane", then a song called "Altogether" which we recorded for Red Bus. These tracks were also produced by Ellis Elias. This was in 1973. "Altogether" was pressed for release on the Red Bus Label, and release date was intended to be September 73, but it wasn't to be. Then after that we recorded "Genevieve" along with several other tracks, but felt it wasn't strong enough to be released as a single, so we recorded "Eee I'm All Right" to go with our new image as Pearly Kings.
