Format: Audio CD
I should clarify my headline: some songs are strange, and some addictive. Compared to Life Is People, Bill Fay's recent album, recorded some 40 years after this one, this is a more uneven affair. The outstanding pieces include 'Inside the Keeper's Pantry', 'Pictures of Adolf again', and 'Time of the Last Persecution', with the highlight being the haunting, wholly addictive 'I Hear You Calling', which are worth the price of the album on their own.

Other tracks are less memorable, such as the pedestrian 'Omega Day', or feature Ray Russell's guitar going into warp drive, as in 'Come a Day'. Interestingly, the album was recorded, amazingly, in a single day, which helps temper my criticism somewhat. Unlike Bill's first album, or his recent one, this one features a regular band in support with long-time collaborateur Ray Russell on guitars, Alan Rushton on drums, and Daryl Runswick on bass, plus a variety of reed players.

If you've already discovered Bill Fay, this is worth investigating, but I'd suggest you start with either his first album Bill Fay ~ Remastered with Bonus Tracks, or his current 'Life is People'. Either way, it's a fascinating and original musical journey.

I have also reviewed Bill Fay's eponymous album on Amazon and if you're looking at this album I'd suggest you have a peep at that too. Anyone who is a fan of Bob Dylan will probably love this album, and even though I am not a Dylan fan myself, I love this album so much! Such great tracks, and even better than the 'Bill Fay' album. Youtube the few tracks that are available and check for yourself. The mixing of big band backing with simple folk style guitar seems odd, but think of Mumford and Sons, or Cherry Ghost and you get the idea. Superb album and one of my top 5 of all time.
