J.B. Lenoir: Down In Mississippi (LP, 180g Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Bellaphon/Blue Angel) 12 tracks, 180g vinyl, gatefold cover, limited edition (1,000).

J.B. Lenoir, born on 5 March 1929, was a cornerstone of the Chicago blues scene for years. He was on stage with other greats like Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf or Sonny Boy Williamson. Despite various song successes, however, he was long denied the opportunity to record a complete album of his own songs.

This only changed in the mid-1960s when the blues connoisseur Horst Lippmann rediscovered J.B. Lenoir and made it possible for him to record his own works on two LPs: "Alabama Blues" (1965) and "Down in Mississippi". Already on his first album, Lenoir openly criticised the racism of those tumultuous days of the American civil rights movement - and thus became a pioneer of political blues.

On "Down in Mississippi", recorded on 2 September 1966, the bluesman continued his criticism, putting the Vietnam War and the poverty of blacks in the USA into words, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar and the well-known drummer Fred Bellow.
Unfortunately, Lenoir himself did not live to see the release of his second album, as he died in April 1967 as a result of an unexplained car accident. Both albums, however, became his legacy, inspiring other artists - from Jimi Hendrix Ober John Mayall to Wim Wenders.

As a storyteller, songwriter, musician and live performer, J.B. Lenoir was a giant - and he gave a lot to the blues that made it grow and thrive."

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].
