Lewis Lymon

Frankie, Bobby Robertson and Lewis

Frankie Lymon's little brother Louis always seemed to be in his older brother's shadow.
There will always be comparisions between the two. They were siblings and yes they did sound alike.
Hank Williams JNR was once accused of sounding too much like his dad Hank. It is in the genes, get over it!
'I Found Out Why' is Lewis's answer to Frankie's 'Why Do Fools Fall In Love' and it's a good record in it's own right.
'Too Young' is my prferred choice of the two. Both move along at a nice pace.
