After sets from Slim Harpo, Lightnin' Slim and Arthur Gunter this is Jasmine's fourth look at the recording artists of the famed Excello label. This volume looks at the career of the labels premier harp player, Lazy Lester who in addition to his own releases also performed back up duties on scores of other 45s released by Excello. Includes his classic and much covered versions of "I'm A Lover Not a Fighter" and "Sugar Coated Love". Lazy Lester is still touring today at the age of 82. He is probably the last of the great blues harmonica players and here are twenty-six excellent examples of his vibrant harmonica and popular style. If you love the sound of Louisiana swamp blues you'll love this collection from Jasmine.
