J. B. Lenoir

Collectors Blues LP 62593

J. B. Lenoir was born in Monticello, Mississippi on March 5, 1929. He died in an auto accident in Champaign, Illinois on April 29, 1967. Lenoir recorded regularly from 1951 until shortly before his death, mostly on Chicago-based labels such as Chess, Checker, Parrot and Relic. On some of his early records he was backed by His Bayou Boys and in 1963 he recorded several sides with His African Hunch Rhythm, a group that included Willie Dixon on second vocals.


Lenoir had a history of writing and recording topical songs. In addition to Vietnam, examples include Korea Blues ['51], I'm In Korea ['54], Eisenhower Blues ['54], Alabama March ['65], Everybody Crying About Vietnam ['65], Shot On James Meredith ['66] and Vietnam Blues ['66]. His only R&B chart entry, under the name J.B. Lenore, was the 1955 song Mama, Talk Your Daughter [#11].
