Thank you for putting these up for download, Bill. Quite a surprise gift for Nelsonians around the globe. I also believed I'd never hear these. Here's wishing for more DLs in 2012!

Best to you and yours this Holiday Season!

I've listened to Maybe Strange Imagination about 20 times today. WOW. What other gems are awaiting us in the archives?

Awesome! Thanks Bill. Great Gift.

Everyone goes on about Be Bop Deluxe, but I loved this Demonstrations Of Affection era. :D

"Where Do We Go" is particularly haunting, sounding like a final summing up of the whole gamut of emotions that Demonstrations Of Affection goes through on it's 4 discs.
"I'll Be Everywhere" was not what I was expecting!
"Tropicus" from Chameleon with lyrics.

Do you remember you recorded a completely different song, also called "I'll Be Everywhere" in 1989 for the proposed Be Bop Deluxe project?

Here's the first couple of verses to jog your memory.

I'm like an open door,
Things keep coming,
Thing keep coming through.
She's like a flash of light,
Burned in my heart,
She keeps on coming through.

Here comes the wind of change,
Here comes the main event,
Here comes the bolt out of the blue.
I'm tempting providence,
Running with the wind,
Getting wise to me and you.

I'll Be Everywhere. etc.

You may have forgotten all about it because, as I recall, you were wiping tapes and re-using them at the time.

I'm looking forward to hearing some more.

Best Wishes

Now that I've had a chance to listen to these I'm a bit surprised that, as "demos", they never made it to general release. :shock:

They seem like strong tracks pretty decent enough sound quality (for demos).

A great nostalgia hit that took me straight back to The Love That Whirls and Getting the Holy Ghost Across; good times.... :)

While I am still trying to catch up on Bill's generous output of the last 3 decades I welcome these samples, wistful and welcome.
