Lew Lawton aka Moondog, was born Lucius Lavarn Lawton, in 1942 in
Savannah Georgia, and died 2004, shortening his name to Lew, he recorded I'm
Just A Fool for Capitol Records #5274 in the US. The second of only two
for the label both of which were picked up for release in the UK by Ember
Records, the first: Doing The Philly Dog was also released in 1966;
after recording for Capitol he moved to Wand where he released the popular dance
cut Knick Knack Patty Wack in 1967.
A fine Soul ballad, with some nice girl group vocal backing, I'm Just A
Fool (And Everybody Knows) was produced by Marvin Holtzman with
arrangements by William Sanders and recorded in New York; the flip Wrapped In
A Dream is an up-tempo cut that is more favoured by fans of Northern Soul.
