Six years ago, a Canadian record collector was rummaging through a bin in a flea market, and came across an LP that caught his eye.

The collector took it home and took a listen. The 10 tracks inside were melancholy and mysterious.

The collector shared it with a blogger friend and it quickly became an obsession among a certain group of collectors.

Then, a small label called Light in the Attic decided to re-release it.

But the label wanted to know first: who was Lewis? And what was the story behind “L’amour?”
