Recorded in Sydney, produced by Paul McKercher, “A Life Full of Farewells”, The Apartments’ third album, was originally issued on CD only, in 1995.
Released two years after the legendary “drift”, this muffled album filled with melancholy ballads once again displays the writing talent of Peter Milton Walsh. Over a quarter of a century later, these majestic compositions, these silky arrangements, this delicate pop engage us with new emotions. Here the nuances are subtle and the musician’s demons seem for a time abandoned, leaving room for a new serenity.
Reaching full musical maturity, “A Life Full of Farewells” ’is a centerpiece of Australian discography, now unearthed and released for the very first time in vinyl format (limited edition, 500 units, olive opaque + vinyl black classic) and digital. Australian vinyl mastering legend, Don Bartley, who also mastered the original A Life Full of Farewells CD, mastered the album for vinyl for the first time for this Talitres release.
