Notes About the Release
A violin prodigy that hitchhiked across the world throughout the ’60s, Larry Lewis hatched a plan to upgrade his life in 1983. A scheme was cooked up to purchase and redistribute a couple pounds of grass, the proceeds of which were plowed into a Portastudio and a few Roland drum machines. The resulting album African By-Pass reflects his travels across Africa and the many ring roads he’d encountered, figuratively and literally. A run of 100 copies were dubbed on a yard sale-scavenged tape duplicator, with copies distributed to friends and local shops in Vancouver. This breezy mishmash is an unassuming, addictive charmer, stony without the spaciness—a vibe.
