Editors’ Notes

Bill Fay devotees who longed for more music beyond the obscure English singer/songwriter’s 1970 eponymous debut album and 1971’s Time of the Last Persecution can now rejoice. Fay’s long-lost third album has finally been released, with bonus gems totaling a generous 20 songs. As with Judee Sill, many of Fay’s folk-based songs blend cultish spiritual curiosities with beautiful melancholy, sometimes orchestrated and other times stripped down. “Strange Stairway” opens with overlapped keyboard arrangements, fretless bass, and Ray Russell playing electric guitar through a multitude of effects. Fay’s voice takes a slightly more commanding presence with harmonies and overdubbed parts, immediately noticeable on “Spiritual Mansions,” where he sings over a bleak and beautiful score (rather than hide under it). The standout song “Planet Earth Daytime” shape-shifts like a mini suite with a picturesque narrative. Throughout, synthesizers fall somewhere between the darker sides of David Gates and Bob Welch, most noticeably on the haunting “Hypocrite.”

Customer Reviews

Uneasy-listening for early '80s nostalgists/hipsters

This album is a challenge to current taste-makers in the so-called freak-folk/emo/post-prog bandwagons. Discovering this CD via David Tibet's (Current 93/Nurse with Wound) Durtro website, it immediately intrigued me as he has led me over the years to discover many jewels like Iceland's Hilmar Orn Hilmarson, Japan's Ghost & Magic Lantern Cycle, legendary krautrockers SAND. Tibet even got me to rediscover my childhood curiosity in Tiny Tim, beyond "tiptoe-through-the-tulips," bringing me face to face with my own cliched prejudices. So, here is BILL FAY, a brilliant arranger of somewhat precious songs that just grate right up against my usual tastes and ideas, but have captivated me in a similar vein, as say, watching a Todd Solodz or Lars von Trier film. That is to say, THIS IS A GENTLE CHASER FOR THE WORST REPENTENCE INDUCING HANG-OVERS, or for '70s kids to get wicked nostalgic about their time down at their local evangelical church-camp music-hour by special guest performers--if you were lucky enough to have groups of this rare musical calibre, that is. And if so, miserably sadled with the DTs and hopelessly nostalgic about such a misspent youth, you will weep uncontrllably, as I did, at the profundity of ambivalence that hits you on tracks like "Strange Stiarway" (esp. track 16 version), "Hypocrite", "Life", "After the Revolution", and "Man". That said, it may still take all of the tracks below, listening to the CD in its entirety, to wear down your own prejudices and get you to remember that IT TAKES ALL KINDS TO MAKE A WORLD.
