Fantastic Guitars - CD Code: BN-FGT Price £15.00 pedalscope

Released July 2014 - Limited Edition

Long time David Bowie collaborator and now lead guitarist of The Cure, Reeves Gabrels, has been a friend of Bill Nelson for over 20 years. During that time a collaboration has often been discussed but it was only recently that serious plans were made for the two guitarists to record together. The result is 'Fantastic Guitars,' an album of guitar instrumentals that marries their playing in a unique and exciting way. If you love electric guitars they don't get more astonishingly electric than this!

Altar Pieces   Price £10.00 altar

Re-released April 2014 - Digital Download Album

This is one of the rarest of Bill Nelson's ambient instrumental albums. These eight tracks were originally created for a live performance in Wakefield Cathedral as part of the city's 1990 Arts Festival. The performance was titled 'Opus Illuminatus' and featured live improvisations on guitar, (by Bill,) and saxophone, (by his younger brother Ian,) played over interactive 'backing tracks.' These tracks, (without the live overdubbed guitar and saxophone,) were released as an extremely limited 500 edition cassette only item in 1990....24 years ago now. They became highly collectable and were never made available as an official CD album until now.

Return To Tomorrow - CD (Nelsonica 2012) Code: BN-RTT Price £12.00 return CD

Released October 2012 - Limited Edition of 1,000 CDs.

This is volume one in a series of albums designed to gather together rare and previously unreleased home recordings from the ‘80s onwards under the series title 'THESE TAPES REWIND'.
From the mid ‘80s and into the early '90s my home studio, ('The Echo Observatory'), used a reel-to-reel analogue 16-track recorder. I mixed down via an analogue desk onto a very early SONY PCM F1 digital stereo machine.
Whilst I released several albums recorded this way, there was a huge amount of material left 'on the shelf’. For many years I chose not to listen to them or consider the possibility of their release. It is only now, in 2012 after many enquiries from fans, that I've had the curiosity or inclination to listen through this archive of old recordings. I was surprised by what I found. I've selected 24 tracks to present here. Other volumes will follow next year.
