Big Mama Thornton was one of the greatest blues shouters of all time, rightfully inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1984. Her music has influenced the likes of Janis Joplin and Elvis Presley, both of who would later cover songs originally recorded by Big Mama. In 1966 she joined up with the Muddy Waters Blues Band (Muddy Waters - guitar, Otis Spann - piano, James Cotton - harmonica, Sammy Lawhorn - guitar, Luther Johnson - bass, Francis Clay - drums) at the Monterey Jazz Festival to cut this live classic slab of down home shoutin' blues for Arhoolie Records. Tracks include "Bumble Bee," "I'm Feeling Alright" and "Life Goes On." Limited edition colored vinyl of 500 copies.
