Joe Pullum (circa December 25, 1905 — circa January 6, 1964) was an American Texas blues singer and songwriter. Pullum, a Houston-born nightclub singer, was one of the more obscure blues stars. He was accompanied on his few recordings by two pianists; Rob Cooper on his earlier discs, and Andy Boy on his later efforts. Pullum's major success was with his self-written song, "Black Gal What Makes Your Head So Hard?" (1934). It sold in large quantities and was covered by Leroy Carr, Skip James, Mary Johnson, Jimmie Gordon, Josh White, Bumble Bee Slim, the Harlem Hamfats and Smokey Hogg.
