Originally released in 1995, "A Life Full of Farewells" is The Apartments' third album. Released only two years after the legendary "drift", this hushed 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. Australian vinyl mastering legend, Don Bartley, who also mastered the original 'A Life Full of Farewells' CD, mastered the album for vinyl. 'A Life Full of Farewells' revolved around situations that could only be experienced, not imagined. These characters seemed fated to grow weary not just of the places they were in, but tired of themselves as well. The album feature bass player Eliot Fish, who toured France with The Apartments in December, 1994 as part of the Les Inrocks Festival. Eliot later toured Europe with The Apartments and appeared on The Apartments albums, No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal LIVE at L'Ubu and In and Out of the Light. And it also saw the first appearance of Chris Abrahams (The Necks) on the unforgettable torch song, She Sings to Forget You. Chris went on to play on The Apartments albums recorded during the two years following A Life Full of Farewells-f?te foraine and apart. Chris also played on 2020's In and Out of the Light as well.
