The artist, Lewis, is a bit of a mystery. Not much is known about the man and conjecture surrounds most of what has been heard. The team at Light In The Attic have dug deep once again and bring us this rare album.
The ingredients of 'L'Amour' are simple: smooth synthesizers, feather-light piano, ethereal, occasionally inaudible vocals and the gentle plucking of acoustic guitars. But the effects are arresting: a spine-tingling, sombre album that echoes Springsteen’s Nebraska or Angelo Badalamenti’s atmospheric soundtracks. Later, Arthur Russell would grasp for something similar on the epochal 'World Of Echo' LP.
