Mononymous Canadian crooner Lewis' only known album, 1983's L'Amour (which must certainly have been a cheeky reference to pulpy Western author Louis L'Amour), is an atmospheric, introspective set of almost narcoleptic synth and acoustic pop ballads. Think a mumblecore take on Bryan Ferry or David Bowie singing on Ambien and you'll come close to the sound Lewis achieved on L'Amour. This is chilly, synth-based music featuring long instrumental stretches, punctuated by Lewis' almost unintelligible if not unpleasant singing.

In 1983, a man named Lewis recorded an album named L’Amour, which was released on the unknown label . And that’s about all we know. The record itself is a delicate, whispered album, reflecting the way the artist himself – spectral, movie star-like – almost disappears into the grey of the cover. It should come as no surprise that it failed to shout loudly enough to be noticed, another private press album that sank without trace.

It's a New Day' off that one is something special.

Talk about Lewis - L'Amour


sobolica
Mostly mellow folks sounds so sweet'n'sour feeling.Anyway my copy has no regular sleeve. It just paste on of Xerox copy of Death Mask like figure (on front side) and song and credit listing (on back side). Do anybody has this kinda copy?
Rgia
Just one man's opinion, but this is one of the greatest albums ever made. Slow, smoldering jams that never get old.
Ballardana
yyyyyyup! I believe I said your very words^ earlier tonight

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Lewis plays the synth and there is no Phillip Lees, the playing seems like it is completely in sync in terms of balance and tone with the piano and voice and it is fairly hard to do that without being familiar with the songs or familiar with the player. The jury is still out on the "Neil Armstrong" that is credited on Romantic Times (if only because I know Lewis can plays keys, but I won't assume that he knows how to play sax). My intuition tells me that maybe Lewis wanted it to seem like he had more players because it would appear more "professional" and like a legitimate big time recording session. The album artwork seems to try to seem like that as well. But, just an observation, there may well be a Phillip Lees out there.

This deserves the 'lost classic' title. Late night synth moves mixed with Lewis' understated world weary but still hopeful whisper. Unique album. 10/10

Sticker on back of sleeve states 'Includes The Hit Single - Romance For Two' ?????

This album of spectral, moody pop is one of the most exceptional records of the 1980s. Some of it is so hushed and minimal it's barely there. And talk about intimate - I reckon Lewis cut this as his own personal seduction album: "hey baby, wanna come back to my place and listen to my record?".Put it on quietly and use it as a discreet background scene-setter. Equally - crank it up a bit and wallow in the sublime and gorgeous moods that Lewis conjures. Lewis's next record Romantic Times took his sound one stage further and manages a mutant strain of Suicide, Bryan Ferry, Angelo Badalamenti and Arthur Russell. It's a bridge too far in my opinion... at times his mannered crooning crosses the dangerous threshold into pure ham. It's still a great album - but it's not as mysterious or sublime as L'Amour - which (repeating myself) is one of the best records of the '80s.

His heretofore previously unknown 2nd album "Romantic Times" (RAW 1002) showed up on eBay July 20th 2014.Given that the labels on the 2nd album say "RAW 1002", isn't it likely that this original release said "RAW 1001" instead of "R.A.W. 1001"?
Runehammer
No, it is actually R.A.W. 1001 on both the cover and label. I have an original.
