RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON STIFF RECORDS 1979

Stiff SEEZ 16 made in UK

Vinyl NM. Cover EX.

Harmonica player/vocalist Lew Lewis made only one album, "Save the Wail". Before going solo he'd been in Eddie & The Hot Rods, the excellent pub rock-new wave crossover band, and appeared on their 1976 debut single, "Writing on the Wall"/"Cruisin' in the Lincoln." Lew Lewis is a very good bluesy Little Walter-influenced harmonica player. This debut solo LP blends pub rock and blues-rock, including many originals. Some songs are slightly pop-tinged blues/R&B/rock, such as "Win Or Lose," which blends an early Yardbirds-like harmonica R&B charge with the more anthemic melodies of late 1970s new wave power pop. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lew_Lewis
