I can't be the only noticing the resurgence in vinyl sales. I believe they overtook CD sales last year for the first time in eons. My lad got a new amp, speakers and turntable for Christmas and his interest in vinyl has reignited my own. I have always preferred physical product over downloads and streaming and enjoying even more time with my lad sifting through record stores has alerted me more to the "Record Store Day" movement and special releases. To cut to the chase, and i don't know the economics of short run vinyl printing, but I wondered how viable it might be for Bill to release a special record? Maybe a 4 or 6 track EP on a 12" or, to really stand out, a 10" record. Just a thought. Maybe too costly but I notice new vinyl releases tend to be priced circa £25 to £30 and some seem to be short volume runs of maybe 1,000 copies.

Forgive me but I've been absent from this forum for a while, and have a couple of things I wanted to raise as queries. The first is about a live set by Bill's Ochestra Futura. If memory serves me correctly it may have been Nelsonica 10 in York. I was blown away by the magical sound created by Bill, Theo Travis and Dave Sturt and wondered if this had been recorded with a view to a CD release? Or if Bill could assemble the guys to make a fresh recording? I mentioned how much I enjoyed it, it was mesmerising, to Bill at the meet and greet that day. I'd love to see the songs see the light of day.

Just seen (and bought) a copy of "Record Collector" as I see there's a 4 page spread on Bill written by David Stubbs. Surprised no-one's mentioned it before unless I missed a thread on this.
