Does anyone know where I can get a good copy of the art work for each of the 3 packages containing the 16 discs inside the Super Deluxe version? The packaging is too big for my scanner! It would be nice to have a different cover for each of the 3 sets of discs displayed by Kinsky / Kazoo when playing the music. At the moment I am using the image on the external box for all the discs.

I have noticed whilst giving the content of my Super Deluxe version of 'Live! In the Air Age' the dBpoweramp treatment, that what I have always referred to as 'Down on Terminal Street' has been shortened to just 'Terminal Street' for every entry on the new package. I have just checked with my original vinyl copy of 'Modern Music', and it definately says 'Down on Terminal Street'. Typo or intent?

Is this a typo? See the 6 disc version, disc 2! Or was this intentional as it was a provisional / working title?

My super deluxe version of Drastic Plastic has landed. I have managed to get the audio tracks from the DVDs; (discs 5 and 6), in a suitable format for adding to the CDs to form a 6 disc set for playing. All is okay except that I do not recognise a few of the tracks playing on the section, Be Bop Deluxe in The South of France - Bill Nelson's Home Movies Filmed Whilst Recording Drastic Plastic. I would ideally like to add titles to this section. Can anyone help? I have so far in order of play: Her Presence in Flowers / Kid With Cowboy Tie / Tropicus / ? / To the Sea in Ships / On the Beach / V-Ghost / Over Ocean / Holiday Express / ? / ? / ?. Can anyone agree this and fill the gaps denoted by question marks? To be honest, Because I didn't recognise some of the tunes, I have used Shazam and I am just replicating what it has told me; (shameful)!

Tony Goes to Tokyo... is probably my most played piece of Bill's music. Whilst listening the other day to the sparkled up version on Transcorder, I remembered something I read about the song, (in Sounds?), way back when it was first released. If I remember correctly, it was written about Tony Mitchell visiting Japan at around that time. Was Tony the writer for Sounds that always gave Bill's music a glowing report, and have I remembered the origins of the song correctly?

Look what I found Squirreled away in my box of cassettes! I re-created it from my CDs and Vinyl and played the mix for what must be the first time in 35 years, on Thursday this week. It's all I remember except in reflection I think one track might be suited to a different mix; (Soon September), but the sequence is still excellent! Does any one like the look of this?

Can anyone help? I used to watch in the very early 80s a BBC Music program entitled Oxford Road. If I remember correctly, Bill made an appearance on one episode? Can anyone confirm this? Somehow I have the audio to one of the programs; (if it is Oxford Road) and there is an amazing track on it by a band named Epsilon. It is entitled ‘What She Says Goes’; (I think). I have managed to get the track on to my computer and it now forms part of a brilliant mix-tape I’ve created. I have tried researching the band but have discovered nothing. Does anyone have any information about them?

I have been playing Tramcar to Tomorrow today and noticed that what is labelled 'Piece of Mine' on 'Live! in the Air Age' is labelled as 'Peace of Mind' on the CD. Is it a typo?

I have today 'digitized' the double LP The Best Of and the Rest Of. The version of Blazing Apostles on it is obviously a live version. Can any one tell me which live version? Are the two sword like characters next to the title on the listing on the cover a clue? They denote 1977, so is the track an edited version of the one on Live! In the Air Age?

Post woman Carol delivered my super deluxe version of Modern Music yeasterday. I've listened to it several times now. Lovely! I like the two new items; the first versions. I must say the remastering has altered how the album sounds but I'm okay with that!

I wondered if Bill was aware of the work of Steve Reich? A BBC 4 programme 'Tones, Drones and Arpeggios' named the album as seminal to the minimalist genre. My music listening at the moment seems centered around minimalism so I bought the CD. It is amazing! Probably the best piece of music I've heard in years!

Track 1 on the rear cover reads, 'Gentle Sprits Prevail'! I take it should be 'Gentle Spirits Prevail'. If not what is Sprit? A Spirit with one 'eye'

I think it was in 1983; (please correct me if I'm wrong), when a competition was run in an Edition of Acquitted By Mirrors to meet Bill in London. I was lucky enough to be one of several winners and traveled down on a Sunday with my girlfriend; (now wife) to the Bloomsbury Crest Hotel in London and had a wonderful day. I have stumbled across a fair few photos of the occasion and wondered if any fellow forum members attended and if they were interested to see them ; (they could be on one)?

I know I'm going to get slated for asking this but... I have just realised that Stand By: Light Coming... is only the second CD I've bought this year that has come in a plastic jewel case. So far this year I've bought over 50 CDs so 2 is a very small proportion, but the norm seems to be card packaging, I believe. Is card environmentally friendly and plastic not? I'm no expert! I have noticed though that some of the multi CD sets have plastic inserts, but conversly a lot are boxed with cardboard sleeves for the individual items. Most single CDs I've bought seem to be card in card. I ask readers; what is your view?

A wonderful alliterative line from Zoom Sequence on After the Satellite Sings. Just playing some older Bill tracks intermingled with my other love of the moment; Erased Tapes.

There was a meet up before the 2017 event in a converted boat near to the University. Is there to be a similar gathering this year? If so, could I suggest the pub on the main road just up from the campus. I forget the name of the place.

Bill, if the day you talk of was a Sunday, it must have been 1973. I checked the internet! This date in the following year, 1974, a Monday, is when Be Bop Deluxe supported Cockney Rebel at Tiffanys in Hull. My first ever gig.
