Wow! - 227 pages to read on my favorite musical subject; Bill Nelson and his wonderful music, thanks guys.

This is going to take a while to digest but on an initial scan through the content - what an amazing job and all credit to everyone involved for getting it into the public domain for all to appreciate.

Many thanks again for such an amazing team effort to produce this essential guide.

Appreciate all the hard work put in to cover ALL of Bill's prodigious output (so far). Matches Bill's professional quality standards, too! Thank you, gentleman!

Download instructions:

When you get to the landing page in the Music Salon, you'll need to right click on the link near the bottom of the page entitled "ND2017...". Then choose the option "Save link", and download the pdf to your harddrive. If you do not download the file to your harddrive first, your computer may try to use an online pdf reader, which will unfortunately render the hundreds of internal links useless.

To open the copy you saved, the best program for PC users is the free version of Adobe Reader. For Mac users, your native Preview program does a great job.


We're sorry for this inconvenience. We'll try to integrate the guide into the website as soon as we can.

John

Truly an outstanding job and long overdue. I have been collecting Bill-related 45's for some time now and have wondered if there was a Bill sessionography laid out somewhere. Thanks to you, I can now keep track of which Skids 45's I am missing. :D

Seriously, great effort all around. I am flattered to have some of my comments included also. Seeing Bill's work laid out like that is really something. Bill has got to be one of the single most prolific musicians of all time. Thank you for your efforts. I'm already wasting many wonderful hours perusing the contents.

I would like to give special praise to John Fisher for learning to use the Adobe InDesign software from scratch in order to build this wonderful resource. I've been using InDesign for over 20 years and this would have been a daunting task for me to take on.
Hat's off to you, John. :D
