It’s tempting, when talking about the English singer-songwriter Bill Fay, to invoke and compare him with other artists dear to my heart, most specifically Jim O’Rourke, Cass McCombs and Jeff Tweedy, whom Fay often sounds remarkably like in both his conversational vocal style and laid-back alt-rock/folk/country-tinged creations. But of course, that does an injustice to Fay, as his first releases predate that triumvirate by decades (he was born in 1943). Another injustice is that Fay was, for decades, under-appreciated. Thankfully, over the last 25 years, Fay’s status has gone from little-known to cult hero, with each new album garnering effusive praise and evangelisers (Tweedy, Kevin Morby, Adam Granduciel and Julia Jacklin, to name just a few). 

Following 2022’s expanded reissue of the brilliant 2010 LP Still Some Light, comes the remarkable Tomorrow Tomorrow and Tomorrow which, like other albums by Fay, has a ‘complicated’ release history. Recorded between 1978 and 1981, it was not released until 2005, when it appeared on CD with limited streaming and no vinyl companion. A 2006 reissue brought the album onto vinyl but with a truncated sequence and nine songs missing. Now, finally, 14 years later, Tomorrow Tomorrow and Tomorrow arrives in full: double-vinyl featuring 22 songs, plus rare and previously unseen photographs from the LP’s original recording session. Fay’s most significant collaborative work, the group dynamic endows Tomorrow Tomorrow and Tomorrow with a grander sonic scope than usual, providing an elegant counterweight to Fay’s instincts for the understated. Here’s to many more releases (and breathless accolades from his peers) from this singular English artist.
