Who was Carla Thomas? The daughter of Rufus Thomas, who scored in 1963 with “Walkin’ The Dog.” Music was very much a family affair, with Carla first hitting in 1961 with her own composition, “Gee Whiz.” She was only 18 then. It can be said that the Thomas clan was responsible for getting the Stax-Volt company off the ground, thereby becoming the primary competition for Motown in the ’60s.
