Released on this date, in 1992.
"...she touched the core and soul of me, it's nothing new until it happens and when it happens well, wait and see..." love this song, the little backward riffs zipping in & out.always felt a strong connection to the emotions ( I feel ) conveyed within. " So It Goes" is also up there, especially the outro - suspense,proclamation,(harmonised guitars) and release. really fantastic stuff. got chills while writing this. thanks Bill!
Wings and Everything ❤️
love,love,love!!! 28 years later, still loving!
"Needing something more evolved than the old standard blues/rock I listened to as a drunken stoner (which I stopped being in 1988). This was just the sort of music I needed."
That is just the kind of stage we have all (at some point) been at with Bill's music and probably one of the best compliments we can offer him. "Needed something more evolved" - yes, indeed!
And I do wish someone had supplied Bill with the large amount of cash needed to take the BM&LG project (Perfect Serpents?) a lot further...
Life is full of "what-ifs ?", and since Bill has been his own producer for so long, it's an easy one to wonder about the music that might have been....if. Yes, it would be great to have more music with more great artists involved, but at the same time (in the version of the world that actually happened) we have loads and loads ( and a lot more than in the If World, I imagine) of unadulterated Nelson. I have come to appreciate that very much, and since it's no accident, I also have largely accepted it 🤣. Unadulterated, unconstrained, and ever-evolving. Not a bad deal.
Dream Ships Set Sail is the most iconic one for me. New Moon Rising is right up there. From back when I only had a handful of solo albums, and no BBD . Second hugely impactful span of musically formative years, the 90's. Some great Alt Rock from that time; filling some newly opened areas of consciousness. Needing something more evolved than the old standard blues/rock I listened to as a drunken stoner (which I stopped being in 1988). This was just the sort of music I needed.
i love this disc, so many great songs & flaming hot guitars. also, the quieter songs are really beautiful. very underrated, but still amazing. also, they're demos? wow
The 2nd or 3rd BN cd I got, circa 1996. The olden days , before finding the RWBV website, and before I knew of BBD. Just Practically Wired, Summer of God's Piano, possibly ATSS, and this one. Needless to say, it made deep and permanent impressions.
Indeed. it is what got me back to following Bill. I even made a tshirt of the cover art for Linda.
It is a good re-entry point for those that only know BBD.
