The Bach und Mozart Verzeichnis total more than 1000 compositions each - nowhere near to Nelson's output and current age. Many of their works have hardly or ever been performed other than by the composer's themselves.
On the other hand, Ravel's output is way smaller in quantity yet span a very broad scala of the musical spectrum. And remarkably are ALL still being played / performed world wide.

Back to Bill - how many hours of continual playing would his output of 2000 pieces encompass?

In my Bill favorites playlist I have 592 songs, which iTunes tells me would take 1.7 days to listen to. So that gives you some idea :)

hello all...i have decided on this very rare mid year update for TWO reasons. firstly, and most importantly, WE NOW CELEBRATE THE A-Z LIST INCLUDING 2000 SONGS!!! 2007 to be exact as 49 total tracks are added from these three releases: THE AWAKENING OF DR. DREAM, KID FLIP & THE GOLDEN SPACEMEN and LUXURY WONDER MOMENTS to our previous number of 1958. secondly, i got a big hunch we are going to have a vastly prolific second half of 2017. so, by cutting it in half i will be less overwhelmed come years end. again, big thanks to the man himself for all the music. how lucky are we??? thanks and MANY MORE to/from BILL! best, ba

hi tourist!

is this a question for me???

i see a LUMINATION track already here....but NOT a LUMINATRON! maybe you and or i should write the song! :D :D

and sorry, i do NOT know how to cross reference from WHERE the song originates. i guess we would need a real idiot savant to name where the tracks are from!


just passing through for the first time in quite awhile as i am looking what needs to be added. so, look for an update soon with the help of my great friend THE MAYOR!!! thanks for making this such a popular thread all! peace, ba

I have updated the list here on the forum - don't forget that there is a slightly amended version of Benny's A-Z list, with links back to the original release, on the discography section of Dreamsville...
Thanks, as always Benny!!!

i have done the deed at last....adding the FIVE long players (6 actually as one is a double!) YET as i yearly inch closer to senility.
well, the story goes like this....
i have added:

SONGS FOR GHOSTS...........................28
THAT OLD MYSTERIOSO.......................17
THE UNREALIST................................15
DRIVE THIS COMET ACROSS THE SKY........12
DYNAMOS AND TREMOLOS....................12

so, the addition of these 84 tracks here added to the previous 2007, brings us to a grand total of 2091.
FANTASTIC OUTPUT. THANK YOU BILL!
