• JB LENOIR - I Wanna Play A Little While - The Complete Singles Collection 1950-1960

One thing is certain about the idiosyncratic J. B. Lenoir, he was a true original. No one ever sounded quite like him and despite comparisons by some writers to Arthur Crudup his high pitched vocals were pretty much unique.

Although J. B. Lenoir only had one hit in the US with 'Mama Talk to Your Daughter' his influence over the British blues scene was immense. In fact John Mayall was a huge fan and he helped to get his 45s released in the UK.

Rocking R&B and topical social commentary all thrown in the mix. This is Chicago blues with a twist. Let's call it Chicago blues J.B. Lenoir style.
