Lazy Lester played quite a bit with Slim Harpo, a favorite of mine.  Accompanist credits for Slim are hard to come by, but I believe this is Lazy Lester on harp.

That?s very sad news. I met him and saw him play at the Ponderosa Stomp in 2004. Nice guy.

I think Slim Harpo played his own harp on the rack (hence his name).  Lazy Lester however did often accompany fellow Excello bluesman Lightnin' Slim however.

One of my all time favourites, very sad news. I loved his country stuff, he did record 'Raining In My Heart'.
