Some of you may already know that I was in London last week to record a video interview for Cherry Red Records 'Cherry Red TV' internet tv channel.
The interview was conducted by Esoteric Records label manager, Mark Powell and is focussed on the period covered by the upcoming Cocteau Discs/Esoteric 8 cd/40 year compilation box set.

The interview is now up on the Cherry Red TV website. When you go to it, click on 'artist's interviews' and select Bill Nelson.
Here's a link:

Enjoy! :D

Listening now, Bill.

The link takes you to the Label interviews. Look for the Artist interview tab. Bill is at the top.

Excellent interview, if a little stiff. Wouldn't have killed you to strum a few notes... :wink:

By the way, I'm still waiting for my Be Bop box, ordered more than 3 weeks ago from Amazon.uk. Would you happen to know if they are familiar with airplanes? I'm assuming my set is coming by raft across the Atlantic, then when it reaches American soil will continue by stagecoach. By the time it arrives, it will be time for the next remastering...

If your CDs sold here are sent similarly, please let me know when I order and I'll swim over to get them.

Spice,

You'll have no such problems with delivery from Sound on Sound. Ask any of your fellow countrymen on here.

Buying from SOS via the Dreamsville Department Store is the quickest way to obtain my albums if you live in the 'States, (plus it's the only place you can buy my new albums from anyway.)

By the way, the Be Bop Deluxe set isn't actually in a box as such. It's a jewel case style package containing five cds. And, as it is an EMI release, it is only available through retail outlets and is not available from this website's store.
Amazon, whilst being a huge retailer, do seem to sometimes have supply problems. I have no idea why that should be but I do know that American fans buying my solo work direct from Dreamsville are full of praise for Sound-On-Sound's delivery service. I'm sure that, if you decide to order something more recent, (and if you haven't already, you really should,) you'll have no problem with delivery times. :)

Thanks for the info Bill. It showed up yesterday! Very cool jewel box. After I devour it I'll be back to start on your solo works. I'm 56 now, so hopefully I'll have enough time to catch up. :lol:

Hi All,

I managed to watch the interview peicemeal during lunch breaks at work (I didn't expect it to be 50min long). Really great to hear about the background to some of the albums but what was a real treat was just hearing Bill speak as I don't think I've heard an interview with him before.

I then had a flashback to my youth and I wonder if anyone else has this memory.

I recall a program hosted by the DJ Mike Read called Pop Quiz (or something similar) which was a kind of musical Question Of Sport with 2 teams of music celebrities answering pop questions, and I recall Bill being a guest on it, I would guess around 1980.

So that would be the only other time I've heard Bill speak.

Anyway great interview and it has made me more impatient for the box set to arrive
Cheers :)
