Do tell more of this Astroloops please Jon. Will you supply me with titles to include in my next A-Z update please? Is there front and back artwork that you can perhaps share here? Thanks, Benny

Hi Benny,
Astrloops is an ultra rare release that was given away to purchasers of Bill's 'Astroluxe Custom Guitar' - here's a quote from a post of Bill's some time ago...

Bill Nelson wrote:
As you may know, I've made an album of guitar loop based music titled 'Astroloops' which will be given away with every 'Astroluxe Custom Ltd' guitar sold. (And they have already sold out.) So just 24 copies of the 'Astroloops' album will find their way into the hands of the 24 'Astroluxe Custom Ltd' guitar buyers. A highly limited edition item as I'm sure you appreciate.

But, because many of you may be curious as to the nature of that album, I've decided to make a further set of recordings using the same concept, ie: looped guitar patterns with one-take improvised overdubs.


I believe the follow-up album will be entitled 'Loom'.

I'll try get hold of the tracklist from Astroloops and PM them to you.

Hope that helps.

Jon.

That is an incredible amount of recorded output. If I were to pick 2-3 albums, which of that list is the most popular / sold the most copies?

Thx

The big issue is that only a fraction of Bill's output is actually in print.

The best thing you could do is to go to the Dream Dept. Store & score those recent discs that are still in stock.

Then, you could check Amazon, or the retailer of your choice, to get a few (very few) of the discs that were put out on major labels. Mercury did a re-release of some of Bill's 1980s albums Quit Dreaming & Get On The Beam, The Love That Whirls, and Chimera. Those three likely had the largest circulation of any of Bill's albums.

Thx for that. Not much of a fan of the 80's output and was looking at albums post 2000. I found a collaboration with Reeves Gabrels on Bandcamp that I will download and will also check out the store.
