Born outside of Natchitoches, Louisiana and largely of French Creole descent, LaCour developed into a multi-faceted entity: singer, songwriter, and eventually producer and label owner. Lennie migrated up to Chicago and sang with Al Peterson’s orchestra before winning a contest to sing a rock and roll jingle for Orange Crush, and he was off and running.
After his Academy stint was over, LaCour was advised by Leonard Chess to launch his own label, so he formed the Lucky Four logo, issuing No Privacy under his own name and then as The Big Rocker in 1961. Relocating to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Lennie established another imprint, Magic Touch, that released seminal soul singles by Harvey Scales & The 7 Sounds led by their killer ’67 two-sider Get Down b/w Love Itis. The maverick producer continued to record right into the 21st Century.
