L.C. Green

b. 23 Oct 1921, Minter Town, Mississippi, USA, d. 24 August 1985, Pontiac, Michigan, USA. Vocally as well as for his repertoire, L.C. Greene, whose information were issued minus the last ‘e’ to his name, was indebted to John Lee ‘Sonny Son’ Williamson. His amplified acoustic guitar playing is actually Mississippi Delta-derived, but most likely owes something towards the recognition of fellow Detroit blues vocalist John Lee Hooker. Greene documented in the first 50s (frequently along with his cousin Walter Mitchell on harmonica) for Joe Von Fight’s shoestring procedure, which leased several edges to Dot Information, but he under no circumstances matched up the fortunes of Hooker, whom he equalled in acoustic guitar skill and power, but not in songwriting capability.
