SplitScreen Entertainment announces the release of its uniquely themed tribute album, "WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks." A musical homage to the big, beautiful women who make the rockin' world go 'round, "WHOLE LOTTA LOVE" features all-new recordings of popular songs praising the fuller female figure, originally made famous by some of the biggest names in rock and pop music. These anthems to abundance are performed by renowned rock & rollers from yesterday and today, along with a select few rising stars. In direct opposition to the "no fat chicks" mantra espoused by some, "WHOLE LOTTA LOVE" is a star-studded celebration of large and lovely ladies.

Starting off the salute with a regal flourish is Queen's arena rock classic "Fat Bottomed Girls" by L.A. Guns singer Phil Lewis, with guitarist Paul LaPlaca and drummer John Macaluso. Next, the Poison chart-topper "Unskinny Bop" is ably recreated by party rock outfit Evick, featuring members of the Bret Michaels Band. This is followed by a high-octane version of the AC/DC concert staple "Whole Lotta Rosie" by Rufus Fontain, featuring Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar and original Jackyl vocalist Ronnie Honeycutt. Danger Danger frontman Ted Poley lends his trademark vocals to the Electric Boys hit "All Lips N' Hips," alongside his Poley/Rivera partner Vic Rivera. Then rock & roll comic C.C. Banana offers up a faithful rendition of the Kiss track "Spit" (a.k.a. "Split"), featuring bassist David Z of ZO2 and guitarist Angus Clark.

Plus-sized songstress Celisa Stratton brings all-new meaning to the title track "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin, in conjunction with veteran Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali and guitarist Alex Grossi. And the Sir Mix-A-Lot hip-hop smash "Baby Got Back" is given a metal makeover by comedian Don Jamieson, co-host of "That Metal Show" on VH1 Classic. Next up is an offering from founding Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French, Tuff vocalist Stevie Rachelle and longtime W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland, who collaborate on a cover of the Ted Nugent cult favorite "Thunder Thighs." Plus "Big, Fat, Sexy Mama," a song by New York City underground sensation The Compulsions, is expertly rendered by newcomers Triangle Exception.

Entering the album's home stretch, Trixter guitarist Steve Brown puts a rock spin on Mika's international Top 40 single "Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)." Concluding the tribute on a comedic note, the bass-heavy Spinal Tap dirge "Big Bottom" is given a 6-string revamp by Twisted Sister guitarist Eddie Ojeda and his Band of Steel. The entire affair is topped with an inspired cover by pop artist Les Toil, known for his bold and beautiful "big girl" pin-up art.

From beginning to end, "WHOLE LOTTA LOVE" delivers a heavy dose of heavy hitters, singing the praises of heavy women. The complete track listing for "WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks" is as follows:

Excerpts from iVillage, The Aquarian, Steppin' Out, KNAC.com, MetalSucks.net + m
iVillage: "There's no shortage of songs dedicated to women's body parts. But why fetishize a single body part when you can celebrate a woman's entire body? That's what's happening with 'WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks.'" - Leslie Goldman

The Aquarian Weekly: "A cornucopia of catchy rock odes to large and lovely ladies." - Bryan Reesman

Steppin' Out Magazine: "Despite the tongue-in-cheekiness of its title, 'WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks' is a solid rock offering by a formidable assemblage of metal mainstays, singing the heretofore unsung glory of fat girls. It's an admittedly odd pairing of elements that somehow combine to feelgood effect."

KNAC.com: "The rock & roll tunes shine all the way through this very left-of-center compilation." - DJ Will

Metal-Lounge.net: "If you like your women built for comfort, not for speed, then you will love this all-star rocking tribute to plus-sized girls." - Tekhammer

MetalSucks.net: "A compilation that combines my love of metal with my love of bodacious, curvy babes? Count me in! The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin' indeed." - Vince Neilstein

RockEyez.com: "A rockin' tribute to big gals is really thinking outside the box! More tribute albums should have this type of flair and passion." - Mark Balogh

Metal-Rules.com: "An album that gives plus-size ladies the spotlight. It just screams good time fun. Take the chance and dive in. You will not be disappointed. It's a fun ride." - Celtic Bob

MetalSucks.net: "Can we get an 'amen' for the lovers of full-bodied chicks? Amen! 'WHOLE LOTTA LOVE' is sure to spark the ire of skinny girl-lovers worldwide!" - Vince Neilstein

Steppin' Out Magazine: "If only Oprah, Kirstie and Wynonna could sample this platter, they might even learn to love their largeness."

Rock Zone: "If you want a tribute album that's just a little different than most (yet still fun and entertaining), then do yourself a favor and pick up 'WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks.' While there are some great classic rock remakes on this CD, what I really enjoyed is that it features a nice variety of musical styles." - Jason Houston

SleazeRoxx.com: "'WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks' is a mixed bag of genres with a bit of everything. I'm actually surprised by how much I'm liking the diversity of the music. Sometimes it pays to think outside the box." - Tania

Steppin' Out Magazine: "Though the title itself is enough to bring an unintentional smile to one's face, the outrageous cover art, inspired song selection and impressive talent lineup are more than enough to support this seemingly ludicrous premise."

BigCuties.com: "If there are any men who don't buy this CD for their girlfriends or wives, I will personally hunt them down and hit them in the back of the head with my shoe until they produce a credit card." - Buffie Sevan
