MY HOME IS A PRISON * LONESOME SUNDOWN * EXCELLO 2102 * USA
Lonesome Sundown, a.k.a. Cornelius Green, on vocals and guitar with Lazy Lester on harmonica. I am eternally grateful to those people who bring color and poetry into my life not only with their music, but through their very names. It seems such an easy thing to do yet is still relatively uncommon outside of a few communities. One of those being the criminal, so called, 'underworld' , there, partly for reasons of anonymity, very descriptive and often colorful nicknames are more common. Lonesome Sundown joined Clifton Chenier's band in 1955, and recorded under his 'own' name the following year. The above was his second record, the first was Leave My Woman Alone on Excello 2092.
