and then meeting Bill at a performance where we were both playing and being admirers of his 2 LPs able to talk about getting together to maybe rehearse some songs and that going so well meeting weekly the social side of that being very enjoyable, crucial, but still working hard to arrange the music we all wanted to hear it and impressed with Bill's ability to craft a song in the course of an evening A SONGWRITER uncompromising in his attitude towards his music now the group commitment is never questioned. A working trio (The Acme Quartet) improvising and trying, hoping to bring that to the songs (the Bill Fay Group) finding ourselves in 1978 with words and music that record companies won't listen to, don't want to listen, can't hear anyway.

... There was no contract, no working towards a contract and, in the end, no expectation of one. The playing and recording was solely for the end result musically - a musical outcome thatwe would be all right with. Everybody did service to the music...
