Bill Fay "Some Good Advice"

I'm rusty but here goes anyway.

Do you have those certain artists, bands, or even genres that you know are great but you feel like you’ll get around to them when you can? Like, I know I’m gonna get some dub LPs any day now, but today is not that day. For a long time, Bob Dylan was one of those. The record that finally did it in for me was Blood on the Tracks. There was a day two summers ago, when someone was rocking it on the store stereo & it all just came together for me. Ever since then I’ve been on board.

I don’t know why I needed to preface this entry with all that but here’s the slim connection: Sometime last fall I dug up the reissues of Bill Fay's two records & liked them pretty immediately. His sound falls somewhere among the 70s albums of Dylan, Leonard Cohen & Scott Walker (maybe you stop reading here), sometimes all in the same song (even a little Ivor Cutler thrown in on one track, I don’t know why). Like no one said ‘no’ to anything he wanted: string & wind sections, sax solos, those medieval sounding keyboards (I’m blanking on the name). Allmusic calls it ‘over-serious, labored folk/pop/rock.' I had the s/t album on repeat for all of November & December.
