AllMusic Review by

An Introduction to J.B. Lenoir is a satisfying compilation celebrating the legendary Chicago bluesman's early '50s output for the JOB and Parrot labels. Among the 16 tracks, three of them are alternate takes, and five cuts were recorded live: "I Want to Know," "J.B.'s Harp-Rack Blues," "My Dear Old Mother," "Alabama Blues," and "I Had My Trouble." Please note that this reissue includes the majority of cuts from Fuel 2000s Mojo Boogie: An Essential Collection issued in 2002.
