Lazy Lester • You Better Listen

Jay Miller was the leading swamp blues producer. From the mid-fifties to the late '60s, his recordings were standing for the inimitable sound of the Excello masters. The Excello sides possessed matchless coolness that could not be reproduced outside of Louisiana. Until now ... Lazy Lester's late work was recorded in Notodden, Norway (Europe's secret blues capitol) with local guys. The band really knows how to play behind Lester, how to keep pace with his way of singing and playing. Furthermore, the recordings are containing this certain Southern flair and smell one would only expect in an old studio in Crowley, Louisiana. And, last not least, Lester is in good shape. A great, great album. Highly recommended to all fans of the real deal, Southern style.
