Bill Fay has always sung about attempting to understand the most universal
questions: those of nature, spirituality, humanity. His songs are “calming hymns
for another chaotic time”, he says. His influence can be traced through many
artist's work, and so it only seemed right to celebrate this with a collection of
newer voices interpreting his timeless tracks. Originally released in 2010 by David
Tibet (Current 93), Still Some Light was released as a double CD, made up of
70's album demos (Disc One) and 2009 home recordings (Disc Two). This
year, for the first time, this collection of recordings will be pressed to vinyl and
released digitally, presented alongside contemporary reimaginings of the tracks
by Kevin Morby, Steve Gunn, Julia Jacklin and Mary Lattimore. Bill Fay's words
and melodies remain unaffected by the passing of time and changing trends;
and here alongside the original recordings, these reinvented versions still calmly
guide us through another moment of chaos.
Bill Fay's Still Some Light was originally released on compact disc as a two CD
collection in 2010. Reimagined with new artwork and available for the first time
ever on vinyl, Dead Oceans is pleased to present Still Some Light Pt. 1, collecting
Fay's archival recordings from 1970 and 1971. Many of the songs are intimate
sketches which were eventually re-recorded for Fay's self-titled debut and for his
landmark album, Time of the Last Persecution. This double LP set includes heart
wrenching versions of some of his timeless works, such as “I Hear You Calling”
and “Pictures of Adolf Again”, and features equally powerful songs like “Arnold
is a Simple Man” and “Love is the Tune,” which only appear in this collection.
