Renata Lewandowska – Dotyk LP [Pop Jazz, Folk 1974-1985) limited Edition ..With 8 page booklet (white-black).
A twisted chain of events that led to the release of this album could make up the script of a good film. Its main character is Renata Lewandowska - a singer who marked her presence in the seventies but who unfortunately never got to see her album released...until now. After over 40 years, two independent labels, Astigmatic Records and The Very Polish Cut Outs, join forces to present the singer's debut album titled "Dotyk". Throughout her career Renata has worked with such artists as Andrzej Trzaskowski, Novi Singers, Bemibem, Alibabki and many more. However, despite such a noble group of collaborators, she did not manage to break through to the mainstream. The music of Renata Lewandowska seems to escape the Polish standards of her time. The singer's rich, multi-octave vocal was and still is impressive. Although pigeonholed - like many other artists of that time - under the 'Big Beat' label, the artist may be considered one of the few soul singers in Poland. Regrettably, Renata Lewandowska's work did not find a wider audience in 1970s. Towards the end of the decade she decided to give up her career as she didn't see a future for herself in the music industry of that time, leaving behind only one seven-inch single record 'Dotykiem chcÄ™ dzis poznac wszystko" ("I want to know everything by touch today"). Four decades later, this record turns out to be a rare, precious treat for every Polish vinyl record collector.
