thanks for your VERY helpful info LOU! i did view the AMAZON listing and recall that release as it occurred upon reflection, as a DVD only release. therefore, i guess this cd/dvd release is a crooked one indeed. but as the listing for the "REAL" one clearly has it this way...

Solo Set:

Above These Clouds The Sweetest Dream
Golden Dreams Of Circus Horses
A Dream For Ian
For Stuart

i will surely add these two selections! thanks again for your help, benny


Hi Benny,

The only official Rocketeers recordings were from the live LEGENDS DVD/CD, as these were all live recordings, their original forms have all appeared on previous releases.
The two that have never been released before were - "Beyond These Clouds The Sweetest Dream" - Bill Solo Recording. "Golden Dream Of Circus Horses" - Bill & Theo Travis.

Note:- The first track mentioned is "Beyond" not "Above".


thanks! you must be a mind reader. my NEXT question was ABOVE or BEYOND as i see them both. 8)

In regard to "Practice of Everyday Life", I just scanned the tracklist on my set and don't see anything identified as unreleased. However, disc #8 (bonus disc) has several live tracks that I'm not sure about. They are identified as Bill Nelson at the BBC, 4 tracks from John Peel Show 1981 and 4 tracks from David "Kid" Jensen Show 1983. I'm sure someone here has insight concerning these.

The 1981 session featured an exclusive track called 'Jazz' recorded with Richard Jobson. The 3/4 of 1983 session (Contemplation, Dancing on a Knife's Edge and Indiscretion) was previously available as an ABM EP and the fourth track Time Tracking was therefore first released on the box set.

This is Benny's latest update, which should bring the song list up to date (for now)...

7-15-13 update.....THE BLIPS!!!! BLIP! adds twenty two; while BLIP! 2 (The Tremulous Doo-Wah Diddy) adds fourteen. so, 1659 plus these 36 brings us to 1695 at our '15th of July, 2013 stopping (and FULLY UPDATED???) point'.' which ALSO gets us to the story that i owe you all.

my beloved Irish twin sister (born eleven months after me!) IDA went to God up above on July 15, 1999. once i returned to this A-Z list about three weeks ago, with a whooping 10-14 cds to catch up with, i selected 7-15 as a target date for completion, simply as a ridiculously tiny homage to Ida. i wish i could tell you that she was a tremendous BE BOP or Bill fan, but it would be a lie. She was a fan of much GREAT MUSIC and if memory serves, i think she owned a vinyl Modern Music and LIVE! IN THE AIR-AGE back in the 1970's! the guts of this story goes like this. imagine my utter pleasure at realizing the FIRST song on our marvelous A-Z list just the other night, LONG AFTER i targeted this date as my end point!!! it is this type of serendipitous melancholic something/nothingness that warms my heart and allows ME to know that MY GOD is a funny God who loves us dearly and reaffirms for me my old adage that: AS LONG AS SOMEONE WHO HAS GONE FROM THIS LIFE REMAINS REMEMBERED AND LOVED, THEY REMAIN AMONG US HERE! and to further stun some of you, who i would imagine may have no special affinity for Mr. Bruce Springsteen, please take a moment to view this EXCELLENT song, with a very similar sentiment, from his latest record performed live! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXrHQsmON2U

now, here i sit with a decision to be made. do i just wait for 15th of July yearly for my update or would you all rather i try to stay timely and add them as they are received into our lives? me, myself, i'm kinda torn. therefore, i guess i will hand this decision over to our man of honor THE CITIZEN.himself. and please two side notes to Bill, with all due respect....a) you must NEVER write a song with a numerical value of LESS than 15! if you write a song named THREE ANGELS, please have it be the written as the word, not numerically, as destiny has now asked that 15th of July remains our first song here at the A-Z list throughout eternity. and b) as we have previously discussed...WHERE IS THAT X SONG??? perhaps you can call it simply.... "X (for the A-Z list)" or "X (as in Ida)" LOL. cheers friends. it has been a supreme BLAST doing this and/or a labour of love as stated once by a fellow poster here way back!!!! my best always, benny
