JIM FORD’s first LP ‘Harlan County’ is still the holy grail of country soul music.
1-LP vinyl (12inch), 180 gram
* Jim Ford’s previously unissued third album as it was intended to be heard
* Restored from one of the few existing 12inch acetates
* Re-mastered in magnificent full stereo hi-fidelity sound.
* Recorded in 1973 with the cream of Los Angeles’ session musicians.
Jim Ford left us with some mighty fine music and ‘Big Mouth USA’ is a full-length album completed for Paramount Records in 1973 – but never released until now. A twelve-inch acetate of the album circulated among a few people at the label, but only a 45RPM single was commercially issued. Thirty-six years later, Bear Family Records is proud to present what was meant to be the country soul singer/songwriter’s third album.
Be prepared for a country funk classic!
