Editorial Reviews

Time Of The Last Persecution is Bill Fay's second and final album for the Deram label, originally released in 1971. Despite recording more tunes in the late '70s Fay would not release another album until 2004. An absolute classic of melancholy (borderline morbid) folk-rock that falls somewhere between Pearls Before Swine, Leonard Cohen, and a suicide prevention hotline. Time Of The Last Persecution is almost single-mindedly obsessed with end times so it's almost fitting that this brilliant album would be his last release for over 30 years. Now that Fay is back with a new and highly lauded new album, it's high time that his classic, definitive statement is available again on LP thanks to 4 Men With Beards. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with a tip-on jacket.

Format: Audio CD
This album is 1970s: psychedelic, moving between pop song, funeral dirge, and chaotic climax. It deals very poetically with Love, War, Technology, and History. It has a feel to it that is very discernible, and that is the most pleasant thing about Bill Fay. He loves his songs, and he crafts them, sculpts them without a trace of indifference. Like a true bard, Fay has stuffed this album with historical allusions, literary references, and elegant language: But it is done so tastefully that the listener feels he or she has learned something from this album without straining to remember school lessons.

His is one of the five albums I keep in the car I hardly ever drive, for years now: not once have I given someone a lift that they did not ask who it was with positive interest.

All of his work is worthwhile, but this one is very special. Apocalyptic, loving: Bill Fay is the most soothing doomsayer there ever was. About half of the songs are directly influenced by an old religious text Mr. Fay reports to have picked up at a church jumble sale. So be warned of many Christian elements. Yet I tell you, any person who heard this album would say no way in Hell that it was praise music. Folk music, psych-pop, a little bit of R&B in the horn section... But most of all it is an artist singing about the things that reach the farthest over our existence, that destroy us most thoroughly; and how we must find good in the horror we do, truly, to ourselves.

I don't know how to explain it, but this record and Bill Fay in general is so real and great that it almost hurts my feelings. If you are into the darker Beatles stuff mixed with some Dylan and something else, I have no idea what, you'll be consumed by this record. Listen to "I Hear You Calling" and you'll know what I mean.

Perhaps the greatest album ever. Every song on this album is better than 99% of songs ever written.

Not worth spending any of your money on....I tossed it. Could even think of someone I could pass it on to.
