  • Description
  • Release details
  • Bill Fay has always sung about trying to understand the most universal questions: those of nature, spirituality, humanity. His songs are "soothing hymns for another chaotic time," he says. His influence can be traced in many artists' works, so it seemed only right to celebrate this with a collection of recent voices interpreting his timeless pieces.

    This year, that collection of recordings will be pressed on vinyl and released digitally for the first time, along with contemporary reinterpretations of the tracks by Kevin Morby, Steve Gunn, Julia Jacklin and Mary Lattimore.

    Bill Fay's words and melodies remain unaffected by the passage of time and changing trends; and here alongside the original recordings, these reimagined versions still guide us calmly through another moment of chaos. 

    Many of the songs are intimate sketches that were eventually re-recorded for Fay's self-titled debut and for his breakthrough album Time of the Last Persecution. This set features heart-wrenching versions of some of his timeless works like "I Hear You Calling" and "Pictures of Adolf Again," and includes equally powerful songs like "Arnold is a Simple Man" and "Love is the Tune," which appear only on this collection.

    "So if you like the versions reduced to vocals, piano, guitar, bass and drums reduced versions of TIME OF THE LAST PERSECUTION on record, might like to on record, may be delighted with STILL SOME LIGHT PART 1 his bright joy." (Good Times, February/March 2022)
