Bill and Archie Fisher had a mutual admiration and respect for each other. I remember once Bill drove all the way up from New Hampshire to see Archie for the first time, at Arnold Greenberg's "Left Bank Cafe" in Blue Hill, Maine. We had a very enjoyable visit sitting on the steps in the cafe.
One of the very few cds that survived the fire that burned down our house was Bill's "Night Train", on which "Birches" appears.
Listen to his tender, tough songs here:http://www.myspace.com/billmorrissey/music/songs/time-to-go-home-81011063
"It's Time to Go Home" has me in tears today.
