Time Of The Last Persecution is the second studio album by English folk singer, pianist and songwriter Bill Fay, originally released in 1971 by Deram Records.

"Enigmatic" was the tag oft-times tossed 'round Bill Fay, whose loyal cult following grew significantly over the years. Signed to Decca, the singer/songwriter and pianist released two albums in the late '60s and early '70s; their haunting, darkly shadowed songs were never meant to appeal to the masses, even at the height of the psychedelia-streaked introspection sparked by the soul-searching of the day.

Fay fell under the spell of a 19th century compendium of commentaries on the Biblical books of Daniel and Revelations, which would, with the ravaging events of the day, inspire Time Of The Last Persecution.

The title track was written in an immediate and visceral response to the killings of four students at Kent State. Even in 1971, the intensity of Fay's lyrics - reflecting his commentaries in their poetical language, their highly introspective nature, the brooding quality of the music, all exquisitely enhanced by Ray Russell's evocative blues guitar work - left most reviewers cold and confused.

For all its dark vision, it's the possibility of peace and hope that shines through the gloom, and as for all the seeming quietude of the music, it thunders, too, with a power and emotion that speak in volumes as loudly as Fay's striking lyrics.

Check out the tracks: “Time Of The Last Persecution”; "I Hear You Calling" and “Omega Day”.

This reissued LP is pressed in the USA on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl via 4 Men With Beards in May 2013.
