Biography

Lazy Lester (aka Leslie Johnson) has been called a "National Treasure," the "High Sheriff of Louisiana" and "a nut." As one of the key creators of the South Louisiana swamp blues sound in the 1950s, Lester has been often imitated but never duplicated. Blues fans worldwide prize his early singles on the Excello label that were recorded in Lake Charles, Louisiana. ... Read more in Amazon's Lazy Lester Store

Format: Audio CD
If you're looking for a reprise of the Excello swamp blues sound with just a bit of swamp pop thrown in, then this just may be the one for you. Released in 1999 on Antone's Records, Lester is featured with several of the Antone's regulars in support. He had held down a guest slot at the club over many years and the empathy with the support band is evident. On their part the backing team keep things simple and don't overindulge themselves. Indeed it's apparent that the team are well versed in the music that came out of Excello in the 50's and early 60's.

All bar one of the songs on the album originate from Lester's own Excello past or from label mates from that timeframe. Given Lester's own ubiquity at the label - he appeared on many of his label mates recordings - he's very familiar with their styles. One of the more unusual recordings is the swamp pop number, "Irene" originally sung by King Karl with the Guitar Gable band - Guitar Gable himself wrote the track. Given the incestuous nature of Excello, Gable appeared on many of Lester's own tracks and was, reportedly his friend. This new version sticks very closely to the original - apart from the improvement in sound quality you could swear this was an original swampie right down to the hammered piano and the heavy bass line - the support band must have spent quite some time listening to the King Karl / Guitar Gable track.

In addition to the vastly improved musical quality of these tracks, there is also the opportunity to stretch out a bit. His original Excello singles all conformed to the time constraint of two minutes or just a tad over. Thus we get to hear a lot more of his mouth harp which can't be a bad thing.

Excellent! A+++++ 26 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lazy Lester appears to be paying homage to some of his heroes on this new album(CD). He is playing, and singing up a storm, on some of his classics, revamped, and well rendered, with a real on-time back-up band. Then he'll be getting off into this Jimmy Reed ride, and doing a real good job of it. He also remembers Lightnin' Slim, by covering his; "Hello Mary Lee". Nice touch!Now, to be honest, I play this album from cover to cover, I like it all! But the crowning glory of this album is the way Mr. Johnson(Lazy L.) takes off into this solo groove, singing with his own guitar playing along. It made me think of John Lee Hookers', "Crawlin' Kingsnake", with a liberal dose of Lightnin' Hopkins, and Johnny Winter, thrown in for good measure. I love this. The only time I ever heard Lester sing with this limited accompaniment, was way back when, when he was accompanied by Kate Webster on piano, and moaned his way through the chilling; "Bloodstains". Man! That song will make the dogs howl!These two new solos; "Nothing But The Devil", and "My Home is a Prison", may be even better! It is an old Lightnin' Slim song that inspired this new version of "Devil", I have a total of four versions of this song, two by Lightnin' Slim, and two by Lazy Lester. This new solo is as good as any of them.Now "Prison", is a hauntingly masterful rendering of the old prisoners' lament, originally given to us by, Lonesome Sundown, one of the original Crowley Crew, who helped stir up this gumbo that is known as Bayou, or Swamp Blues. Lazy does the song exceeding justice, and gets the Lonesome Sundown signature guitar lick(ala:"Rolling Stone"), down to a tee!. You are almost sitting there in the cell with the guy! To me, this is the absolute essence of the blues! Robert Johnson couldn't have done it better!Lazy Lester is the last living bastion of the Bayou Blues Ethic, and he does a respectable job of putting it down for you on this album; All Over You", and it is aptly named, because it will sure get on you! Don't miss this one! I usually save the best for last, but seeing as how this is the first disc I've purchased in '99, I will have to reverse this tactic, because anything else I run across this year, will have a hard time topping this one!
