One thought on “Big Mama Thornton, Monkey in the barn

  1. This is one of the rarest Sue singles – i paid more for my copy that I have ever paid for any other record! But it’s strictly a one-sider, as the ‘Monkey In The Barn’ side is, to put it politely, a throwaway, or to put it less politely, crap.
