Wah-Wah Galaxy has been added to Bill's Bandcamp arsenal.
First released in 2004 and given to attendees of Nelsonica 04, the remaining copies soon sold out!

Check out the album page and listen to the samples here in the Dreamsville discography.

Jon.

.....yes - great cover - puts one in mind of Bridget Riley and that whole Op Art Movement....wonder who designed it for Bill?

.......on to the music - someone once said, years ago on this forum, that 'the opening (titular) track was worth the the price of entry alone'.......and I wholeheartedly agree, except that the rest of this album also has fantastic treasures to discover for the price of entry.....'Orson Welles' and 'Pure Joy' spring to mind but I'd have to play it again to recall some other great tracks.


I have to be honest and say that I won't be getting the download, as I have the original, but I certainly recommend it to anyone who has never heard it.....I can remember playing it over and over in the car many years back, going to and from work, and gleaning 'pure joy' from it at that particular time!

......anyway, there's my recommendation for what it's worth :wink:

Glad you like the cover, Paul! :) Actually, can't recall if the album's sleeve credits point it out or not...but they should say something along the lines of 'digital cover painting by Bill Nelson..' :wink:

Tremendous album.

If you're not lucky enough to have it in your collection, you simply must get it now. There's no excuse.

Bill always seemed to put these convention albums down a little, almost as 'the stuff left over from proper releases'. But Bill's throwaways are equivalent to most other artists best work.


You will not be disappointed. The Orson Welles Memorial Sleighride and Wah-Wah Galaxy No.1 are pure joy (which happens to be another favourite track on the album) and worth the price of entry alone. (IMHO)

I definitely agree with all the praise this album is receiving. I'm pretty partial to "Bridge Across the Void" and "Skylark's Rise". And of course the title track is killer.
