Live in Europe [Import]
- Artist: Sam Carr
- Format: CD
- Release Date:1/25/2010
Live archive release from the Blues legend, recorded at the Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland in 2000. Sam Carr is as close to royalty as you can get in the Blues world. He was born in Friar's Point, Mississippi in 1926, the son of legendary Blues man Robert Nighthawk (AKA Robert Lee McCoy). Sam Carr cut his teeth playing with his father, then Sonny Boy Williamson before forming the Jelly Roll Kings with Frank Frost. In 1960 they recorded the classic Boss Man album for Sam Phillips, (of Sun Records fame). Their next record was produced by Elvis' guitarist Scotty Moore and yielded a hit with 'My Back Scratcher'. After Frank Frost's death in 1996, Sam put together a new band called the Delta Jukes and these live recordings are their earliest. This is modern Mississippi Delta Blues at it's finest. 11 tracks. 2010.
