Singer/songwriter BILL FAY released two brilliant but poor-selling albums between 1967 and 1971 before disappearing from the public eye. He spent much of the following decade writing, rehearsing, and occasionally performing-all with no contract or record company support. In recent years, reissues of his now-sought-after original albums along with a pair of releases containing previously unreleased material have renewed interest in the English artist. Coptic Cat is pleased to announce the release of Fay's long-awaited next collection of old and new music. Still Some Light consists of 43 songs on two CD with a total playing time of over two hours. It comes in a full-color six-panel digipak with a 24-page booklet of extensive notes, archival photos, and handwritten lyrics to all the tracks. The cover was painted by the musician's brother JOHN FAY. The first CD, titled Piano, Guitar, Bass & Drums, consists of studio recordings, sourced from archival tapes, with RAY RUSSELL on guitar, ALAN RUSHTON on drums and DARYL RUNSWICK on bass. The 1970 tracks are prior to the recording of the Time of the Last Persecution album and contain alternative versions of songs on that album, two tracks from Fay's self-titled debut album, and previously unreleased songs. The 1971 material is also previously unreleased. The second CD, Still Some Light, is a home-recorded studio album from 2009.

FAY, BILL - LIFE IS PEOPLE

Bill Fay's first proper studio album since 1971. Described as "the missing link between Nick Drake, Ray Davies and Bob Dylan," his return shares many parallels with the comebacks of Vashti Bunyan, Scott Walker or Robert Wyatt.
