Philip Lewin :: Am I Really Here All Alone?

Another dive into the world of the 1970s private press universe via the ever-reliable Tompkins Square label. Released in 1975 in an edition of 300, Philip Lewin's Am I Really Here All Alone? has gained a following over the decades among crate digging aficionados – and rightfully so.

It's a powerful set of tunes, with Lewin's echoey acoustic guitar, desolate vocals, and stark piano work cutting through the lo-fi murk. Lots of stuff gets called "loner folk" these days, but as the title . . .
