Lazy Lester produced great Swamp Blues numbers such as ‘I’m A Lover Not a Fighter’. I first him back in the mid-sixties. He was covered by bands like The Kinks and appeared on a compilation album of Swamp Blues. I loved that album – Lighnin’ Slim, Slim Harpo, Lonesome Sundown and Lazy Lester.
So when I heard he was playing a very rare gig I had to go. I gatecrashed a photo session and took a series of shots with him sitting on a sofa. Then I took other shots during the gig.
