Reissue on orange vinyl. 'In Europe' was recorded in 1965, while Big Mama Thornton was part of the Folk Blues Festival revue that was touring Europe. These sessions found her in great form with an ace backing band, offering killer support on tracks such as 'Little Red Rooster', 'Unlucky Girl' and 'Hound Dog'. The band consisted of Buddy Guy (guitar), Fred Below (drums), Eddie Boyd (piano and organ), Jimmy Lee Robinson (bass) and Walter "Shakey" Horton (harmonica). Essential blues!
