Jimmy Lee (James Fautheree) is best known today as half of the Jimmy & Johnny duo of the 1950s. In their time, they blazed a trail across Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas from the stage of the legendary Louisiana Hayride, racking up an impressive amount of recordings for labels like Chess, Decca, and 'D.' Yet Jimmy Lee's own solo recordings from that era are less well known, and most have never been reissued.
With this collection, intended to compliment our Jimmy & Johnny
CD 'If You Don't Somebody Else Will,' Bear Family has corrected this oversight, bringing together for the first time all sixteen of Jimmy Lee
's Capitol recordings from 1951-52. For a bonus, we have included his 1958 Vin single, as well as his rare 1962 Towne House recordings. Rounding out the package is a booklet with many previously unpublished photos from Jimmy Lee
's own collection.
