Time Has Tied Me - Jay Telfer

Jay Telfer

Time Has Tied Me

This MP3 version of Jay Telfer’s only released album from Axe Records was recorded with the help of Jay’s many musician friends (a virtual musical who’s who at the time) and has been re-mastered from the original analog tapes.

Jay wrote “Ten Pound Note” after his days with A Passing Fancy (it became a hit single recorded by blues-rock band Steel River), was an actor in Hollywood movies and TV, wrote movie and TV scripts, collected Volkswagon memoribilia and in later years founded and edited a successful weekly antiques magazine “The Wayback Times”.

In 1990, he moved to Wellington, Ontario to open “Jay’s Bed & Breakfast” located in a home built in 1885. He hosted and performed at the Prince Edward County Folk Festival in 1992. He re-released many of the ‘Time Has Tied Me’ songs, along with some live performances under the name “Heart Of Aluminum Foil – Jay’s Greatest Hit and 15 Other Songs”. Sadly, Jay passed away in 2009.
