Philip Lewin – Am I Really Here All Alone?

I don’t cover reissues nowhere near as much as I would love to. It’s been difficult enough to find the time to write and the money to buy all the new exciting releases. I still wanted to make a small exception here, because the song Watercolours by Philip Lewin has been a huge addiction to me during the recent month. Tompkins Square label is excellent at discovering lost folk gems and based on this one song this sure is a loner folk gem. The album Am I Really Here All Alone? was originally released back in 1975 and only 300 copies were made at the time. Tompkins Square is reissuing it on the 24th of February (LP/CD/digital). I haven’t heard the album yet, but I’ve listened to this song Watercolours so many times that I’ve lost count. Ok, with my awful math skills that isn’t really that out of the ordinary, but oh how I still love this song.

  1. Thank you for your kind words. By now you may have acquired the complete rereleased album. Watercolours is, to me, the most important song on the album emotionally. I’m glad it strikes a chord with you.
