5.0 out of 5 stars Stone me!, 10 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Stoned (Audio CD)
Wonderful,wonderful soul album by a shamefully ignored musical genious. White soul boy he may be,but he has far too much talent for anyone to care who or what he is!
Shades of Marvin intertwined with some almost Beach Boy harmonies. This really is exceptional stuff.Checking the music forums I learn that criminally Mr. Lewis has turned his back on the music industry whivch Is even more tragic is that I have only just discovered him as an artist.Buy his albums and show the interest is strong enough to get him back in the studio.
I purchased the album on a whim and it has blown me away,it will do the same to you if you like real, (non-commercial),brilliantly produced music.

I totally agree with what you are saying in your review Archie but I get the feeling that Lewis prefers not to be be in the limelight and would rather be musically ignored by the mainstream industry. He seems happiest when performing live and if you think his recorded material is good you really need to see him live. He is the consumate performer and i really envy the people that get to play on stage with him as he is sooo good and he makes an awful lot of people really happy. I find it hard to accept that he is such a private person who seems unwilling to share the secrets of his recording techniques and musical experiences but I can appreciate his wish for privacy and I hope he puts out another masterpiece pretty soon.

Mr.Watts
Thanks for taking the trouble to read my review.Sounds like you are a well established fan.Checking the web it appears that Mr.Lewis has sadly given up music and gone back to plumbing.A great shame but maybe he is best remebered as the superstar who never was?
Regards

Yes... I was trying since 2000 to trace who he was after having 'Bittersweet' on a soul compilation and losing it after a move of location. I'd forgotten the name of the track but vaguely knew the name of the compilation. I traced it last night and wow, heard his other stuff- a genius singer and composer, but no commercial success. He very much reminds me of Marvin Gaye in part- brilliant stuff! Bittersweet, I thought was brilliant with its contrasting harmonic parts.
