I feel so good J B Lenoir

Lenoir is a highly underrated bluesman - but he had a great career on independent labels like JOB and also on Chess was still being an avant-garde and experimental figure in the blues. Not frightened of dealing with political issues JB received a visit from the 'Men in Black' about some of his critical of the government blues. There's some really good clips on the old tube but I chose this one as being the closest to his club style of the 50s. Hear him redo his big hit Mama Talk To Your Daughter here.
