Reissue Theory: Ephraim Lewis, “Skin”

with 3 comments

Welcome to another installment of Reissue Theory, where we focus on notable albums and the reissues they could someday see. Beautiful pop-soul from an artist that should have had a much longer career is the order of the day; we present a look back at Ephraim Lewis, the best ’90s soul singer time forgot.

If you use reissues and expanded music titles as tools to uncover an artist’s body of work or to shine a light on a forgotten musician, you doubtlessly have plenty of albums you’d like to see rescued from the flotsam of used bins everywhere, and put up on a pedestal for all to rediscover.

In today’s Reissue Theory, we add another name to the pile: Ephraim Lewis. The British singer is best known among music geeks for his brilliant entry into the music world and his tragic exit from it. But there are plenty who are missing out. And if you like your pop and R&B sophisticated and romantic, you’re going to want to acquaint – or reacquaint – yourself as we imagine a forgotten classic of the ’90s expanded for a new audience.

Slip into Skin after the jump.
