Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lazy Lester (born Leslie Johnson, June 20, 1933, Torras, Louisiana) is a swamp blues harmonica player, whose career spans the 1950s to the 2000s. Best known for regional hits recorded with Ernie Young's Nashville, Tennessee based Excello label, Lester also contributed to songs recorded by Excello label-mates including Slim Harpo, Lightnin' Slim, and Katie Webster. His songs have been covered by (among others) The Kinks, Freddy Fender, Dwight Yoakam, Dave Edmunds, Raful Neal, Anson Funderburgh, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. In the comeback stage of his career (since the late 1980s) he has recorded new albums backed by Mike Buck, Sue Foley, Gene Taylor, Kenny Neal, Lucky Peterson, and Jimmie Vaughan.show more
