Unlike many of the minor figures in post-war blues who passed on before they gained any recognition, Lazy Lester's music is enjoying something of a renaissance. Since 1987, he has toured the USA and Europe and, as Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds says of him, he continues to be 'a great human being, and he plays his ass off!' Lester's own favorite songs - Take Me In Your Arms, Sugar Coated Love, The Same Thing Could Happen To You and Lester's Stomp - are all on this great CD collection, a tribute to the Louisiana blues sound of the 1960s, when downhome music wasn't just 'in the alley', it was well and truly 'in the swamp'.
