LONNIE LESTER - AIN'T THAT A SHAME

(originally posted 1/08)

Gary, IN's (about 30m from Chicago) Lonnie Lester cut three fantastic and RAW singles in the mid-60's (some copies of this record are billed as Lonnie Lester & Chuck Danzy; Danzy was the saxman) of which this is his first.

This record has a fantastic, late night party atmosphere kind of feel, capped off with an incredibly powerful vocal from Mr. Lester.

from c1966...

Great sound...the minor mode entrance well into the song startled me--completely unexpected but adds to the raw charm. Total keeper, Derek!
