J.B. Lenoir – The Parrot Sessions: Expanded Edition V.I. Music 545 450 598-2 (2003 )
A bit like the early electric blues of T-Bone Walker, but more loose, more raw, with an edginess more like Elmore James. It’s understandable that Jimi Hendrix would cite Lenoir as an influence. “Mama Talk to Your Daughter” is a classic, complete with an anti-guitar-hero one-chord solo, and “Eisenhower Blues” marked the emergence of his political side as a songwriter — something that would factor more heavily on his later albums.
