Cool Rare Blues: J.B. LENOIR

Every time I hear J.B. LENOIR's voice, it makes me feel good. An earnest and sweet voice that lifts up any subject he sings.

J.B. was a great blues and boogie guitarist who was criminally overlooked in his lifetime. Ironically, he is more known from the beautiful tribute that british bluesman John Mayall recorded lamenting his death in 1967.

Looking back we now appreciate J.B. for his rollicking playing, crack melodies, pure voice, and his deeply courageous protest songs.

Do yourself a favor and check this guy out...
