In 2001, Bill & Barry began using a computer digital audio recording program. The songs in this volume were recorded between 2001 and 2005. The last recording session with both Bill & Barry was just a few months before Bill's death, December 28, 2005.
One song, "Please Come To Me" is little odd to be included in this collection since it was recorded entirely in 2013, but there is a story behind this song. This is one of the songs recorded as a demo by Bill & Barry in 1975. Although Bill is not credited as a writer on the song there are one or two lines of lyric contributed by Bill to complete the song when it was being recorded. The arrangement is pretty much the way it was done in 1975.
The last song on this album, "Harmony," was written by Barry, just days after Bill's death, and sung at his funeral. The song, like many of Barry's songs is a reflection of his emotions at that time, knowing that there would be no more recording sessions with his musical partner of 32 years. It was a tragic end to a musical partnership that had made a little noise in the indy music world in the late 70's and early 80's, and a lot of music that was never heard over the next 25 years. Now it can be heard.
It is with great pride and pleasure that we present the entire Bill & Barry collection, digitally remixed.
