Jim Ford's first LP, 'Harlan County', is still the holy grail of country soul music. -- 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!
