Well, I ain't got no voice, but I'll give you the words of an old Memphis song.' William Brown began to sing in his sweet true country voice, poking in delicate passages at every pause, like the guitar was a second voice commenting with feeling on the ironic words of the blues... This was the real blues... The blues in print give you the skeleton only. If you've never heard the blues, get yourself a record and listen and then come back and join us... William Brown's song can last until the morning... - Alan Lomax, The Land Where the Blues Began

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'.
