His restless vagabond nature brought him to Arizona, California, Illinois and Alaska. He had his own band "The Bel Air Clowns' request and withdrew the job as one man band. Among the blues greats that he played to find Muddy Waters, Howlin 'Wolf, Buddy Guy, Hound Dog Taylor. After one year long stay in Joliet, Illinois, in 2001 he traveled back to his Mississippi home.
In June 2007 he was in Italy at the festival stage. In Parma there was the "Roots and Blues Festival organized and LC sang and played more than one hour with the superb bassist Justin Showah and guitarist Eric Deaton. The latter gave himself two CDs and is equally adept in the trance music that he has perfected Junior Kimbrough. That gives this album live, with good recording quality, mix of gritty abrasive guitar, drum and bass, alongside the rusty voice of L. C. who else plays acoustic guitar. Lester Wallace also inspired drums like he never did otherwise.
