There are so many gems in the past, that you will never get a straight answer as what to buy from anybody. They all have their favorites. My suggestions was to set a base. It only gets better from there.

Head on over to SOS via the Dream Department Store and buy anything you don't have so that you can decide for yourself. :idea:

Banal is a personal favorite of mine. :D The lead guitar in it is Bill's finest, IMNSHO. 8) 8)

Cheers,

Pod

While perusing the stacks at EM (Everyday Music) today, I discovered a pre-owned copy of Mr. Nelson's Orchestra Arcana Optimism, re-mixed and remastered, FWIW. Did not purchase, however. Is this a rarity?

Re-mixed and remastered? If it was an Esoteric reissue it may well be remastered, but it would be impossible to remix it as the original multi-tracks no longer exist!
:shock:

Update
Been listening to sound on sound again and again


Ok it nearly 40 years old but
It was so far ahead of its time on my first play since 79 I listen with my Stepgrandson who's 21 he loved it immediately and thought it was a new Artist and album as I didnt tell him who it was he was amazed and admitted that Primus must have heard this album and copied the sound (he's a Primus Fan)

at first I thought its bonkers but its absolute brilliant I think Devo stole Bill's sound and tweaked it a bit I also hear a bit of stranglers
there was just nothing like that around at the time

punk had gone new wave was on its way out bands that was breaking such as bauhaus the human league - early ultravox joy division television

red noise were just miles apart and playing to bigger audiences

I think i can see why bebop had its day and with punk just shaking up the industry and turning it upside down
once the water had settled red noise was fresh and totally different and miles away from bbd

so in the scheme of things which album follows on from red noise

or what would have been there second album

as Bill chops and changes there must have been songs specially penned for a second album or are they scattered across a few albums

one more thing after Ive gone through Bills catalogue Im going to have ago at Frank Zappas should have picked an artist with about 20 albums :D

anyway keep busy Bill and good luck with all future events

Yes, please click here go to our album page for Quit Dreaming and Get on the Beam, and skip down to the section entitled Bill's Thoughts. We let Bill tell the album's history in his own words.

Below that we've added a section for fan comments, entitled Fan Thoughts. There you'll find a great set of comments about the album and its instrumental companion, Sounding the Ritual Echo, from Bill's photographer, Martin Bostock.
