  • Lewis L'Amour - Light In The Attic release of 80s private press

    Don't think there's been any mention of this unearthed gem yet? Anyone given it a listen? I just did - and it's amazing - Nick Drake meets 80s John Martyn with syths..... gorgeous chilled out stuff. There's a second recently discovered album coming out soon - good back story to the mystery of the artist, though LITA say they discovered where he is recently. Some people say it is all an elaborate marketing fraud - though I can't see much evidence of that.



    I thought the world of you
    Love showered me

    Lewis found!

    Incredible album, spent a couple of years looking for an original thanks to the guys at Waxidermy, but Light in the Attic saved me once again!
    The whole marketing fraud thing really just doesn't sit with the way Light in the Attic work, i'd have thought it would destroy their well earned credibility.

      I imagined that Waxidermy was all over it! Yes - the fraud thing doesn't stack up for me, as the album came to light in 2009 - why invent it then, and then wait 5 years before acting on it?! As you say - not something LITA would actively get involved in. Looking forward to hearing the second album....

        No its for real, there was an OG copy on the bay a couple of weeks ago for about a grand I think. Someone did bring this subject up though a couple of months ago.
        Can't find the the thread tho.
        It sounds like a dodgy Bryan Ferry record with minimal synths to me.

        LITA though do put out some great stuff.

          That was the second LP I think - the first one (as pictured above) is more like £200

              I bought this because someone on here recommended it (at least that's what I thought had happened). I don't know how the story about it being a fraud started but it's immaterial to me because I like it for what it is rather than it may be a lost classic. If it's not then it's a new classic, which is just as good- but like most I don't think LITA would bother with such subterfuge.

                They tracked the dude himself down to Canada - wished them well for the reissue but didn't want any royalties or involvement

                Pretty mad - love anything with a mad back story like this/Jandek etc

                  You're right, it was this one that was up for grabs



                  I kind of like it as well, there's some nice atmospherics on there. But a few of the tunes he sounds a bit like a pub singer.
                  Interesting story though. Props for that.

                    The first album was mentioned in the March releases thread, it is easily my favorite reissue of 2014. And the second one is also pretty amazing to these ears. Been watching the incredible story unfold on this thread (100+ pages...):

                      Definitely dresses to the left, as well.
