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 for 4 Men With Beards.
Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with a tip-on jacket.
