I'm a Lover Not a Fighter

Lazy Lester is, without doubt, one of the great blues harpists, whose somewhat lethargic style is distinctive and unique. I'm a Lover Not a Fighter acts as something of a tribute to the Louisiana blues scene of the 1960s, and reflects the growing interest in Louisiana blues that Lester's recordings have initiated. Containing such swamp blues classics as "I Hear You Knockin" and the inimitable title track, this release sees Lester in fine form, ably backed by some of the best musicians in Louisiana. Indeed, although showing further signs of the artist's creative renaissance will appeal to devotees, this disc also acts as a perfect introduction to the artist's work, and to both groups, this disc comes highly recommended.
