In case you hadn't noticed, my latest Christmas video is now available over in Dreamsville's 'Essoldo Cinema'. It includes a brand new piece of music recorded on my recently acquired Cubase recording software. The piece is unmastered, so lacks John Spence's mastering magic, but doesn't sound too bad considering that both music and video were hastily put together. Also re-released today as a Bandcamp digital download, is my 'Clocks And Dials' double album, originally released in 2008 but out of print for quite a while. This is a gargantuan album containing nearly 40 tracks and will make a great Christmas gift and listening experience for those of you who haven't been able to get the earlier CD release. Check out the samples on Bandcamp!
Bill's new 2019 video Christmas Card showcases his signature melodically lavish & aurally ravishing guitar tones on this beautiful instrumental track and video by himself in his traditional yearly Christmas video card on his YouTube video channel... According to an email from Bill Nelson's Dreamsville <firstname.lastname@example.org> titled " Clocks And Dials, and a Christmas Video Card...", " The video features a brand new instrumental track, the first recorded on Bill's new recording equipment that has been publicly released!" However, the resolution is only 480 and starting at 6 sec and prominent in the quiet parts of the track are alot of what I can only guess are audio compression artifacts, perhaps a result of the YouTube upload or YouTubes own compression/playing process??? It's a shame because the music itself is so glorious, and the new studio seems inherently to pack a whallop of a sound, but perhaps it was too much to squeeze into a 480 YouTube post? I wondered if it is supposed to be a fire crackling but on repeated listenings I can only hear it as loud and obvious audio noise. Hopefully Bill or someone notices this and posts a fixed higher-rez version. This deserves to be heard in the audio perfection with which I am sure Bill created it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaPwkZRLVQ4
