    With all the Bill Fay releases the last few years, it's a crime that these tracks are still not available in vinyl. These are some of his best works!

        Very good collection of demos and lost tracks. Several interesting embryonic versions of song from his first album here as well as songs that never made it out there. It's nice to hear less orchestral versions of Bill Fay's early songs. My goodness does the Beatles influence shine through in the earlier songs too. This just begs for a vinyl release of the highlights at the very least.

        Also, would someone please upload a higher resolution scan of the liner notes? Any information on Bill is invaluable.
