Stand By - Light Coming....

15 comments

Well, here I am.....first post in what feels like a VERY long time......

 

I've not been here 5 minutes and I've ordered a CD!

 

Hope Bill is keeping well and I look forward to hearing my first Bill Nelson album of the year!

 

Shocking isn't it? ,)

Nice to see ya back lad!

 

...and while you've got the wallet out, may I highly recommend Bill's last/latest download album,

 

'The Last Lamplighter'...it is the companion piece to the last CD 'Stand By : Light Coming', which I presume may be the one you bought?, and is simply magnificent!!..(they both are)

 

A wonderful way to spend a tenner and it's instantly yours!

 

In fact I'm listening to The Last Lamplighter as I type this message..can't stop playing it,

just buy it son, you know it makes sense!😉

The two albums feel like one cohesive work. Some of Bill's strongest work yet. They've been my companions on long commutes for the past few weeks and reveal more with each listen.

Is 'The Last Lamplighter' only available as a download?

 

What else have I missed out on?

 

The last previous purchase I made was 'Dynamos And Tremelos'

 

Nice to see you're keeping up our end, Tourist ;) Life is a whole lot busier for me nowadays so I just don't have the time to keep up like I used to...….. But I do miss everybody. I hope all my Dreamsville friends are keeping well?

 

Anyone heard from Astrophobia/Asterisk/Ne Plus Ultra or whatever he's calling himself nowadays....?

 

I too have been wondering where Asterisk (et al) is. I don't think he has posted in a few years. Hope he is well.

Yes, Lamplighter IS download only... Other releases since Dynamos are:- Auditoria (3 CD set), physical CD box has sold out, but it is available as a download. Stand By: Light Coming... is the forerunner to Lamplighter, still available to buy from Burning Shed. Plus several out of print albums are now available as downloads from Bandcamp. Check out the Store at Dreamsville for a full list of what’s available!!! https://www.billnelson.com/store

Hey Felix T !!!! welcome home. U been lost in the highlands and moors !?

Must admit also to not posting as frequently as before on the old forum.

Good to see your name back in the frame.

Often wonder where some of the other regular names have disappeared to?

Life gets in the way I guess.

Hey Ian! Really good to hear from you fellah, been too long!

I don’t visit Dreamsville as frequently as I used to, though I’m keeping pace with our Bill’s output, so it was a nice surprise to see your post! Hope all is good in Felixworld and that we’ll all meet up again at some point...maybe at November’s cd launch?

  • Can anyone tell me if Bill tunes his instruments to A = 432 htz
  • Hey guys so I'm just looking for some advice as someone who is completely new to playing an instrument. I've been wanting to try learning an instrument for a while and I've been interested particularly in brass and woodwind instruments. I know learning them can be quite hard and time consuming but if I really enjoy it I can spend 1-2 hours most days practicing. The main instrument I've been looking at, the oboe, I've read and been told is one of the hardest instruments and should not be a hobby instrument. I would like to be able to play beginner music within a year or so, should I even bother with the oboe? Do instruments like the flute and trumpet have easier learning curves? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
  • Just playing disc 1 (got copy off Ebay) - sounds fab - any fan thoughts?
