I believe the first 500 copies have the signature. An email to esoteric can clarify if they are still available.


Thanks! I will do that!

Cheers
Mike

Can anyone give me a brief description of what to expect from this one?


In the main, it's a laid-back, minimalist style collection of instrumentals. Very simply recorded but intimate and warm...mainly keyboard/synth-based compositions with some guitar overdubs. Not jazzy but certainly 'cool,' and very pretty at times. It's in a similar sonic ballpark to 'Sounding The Ritual Echo' and 'Chance Encounters In The Garden Of Lights.' I'm very fond of this set. It definitely has its own personality and reflects where my creative imagination was at that time.

Yes; putting on this set again reminds me of how good it is.

Was any remastering or audio sweetening done? (A question probably answered elsewhere). The new release sounds very "clear". I'm hearing stuff that I don't hear on the original CD release(s).

I placed my order through CR and they assured me a signature card. They even upgraded my shipping for free! Can't wait to get it now!!! :P :P :P :D :D :D

Very impressed by Cherry Red - ordered this yesterday afternoon and it arrived this morning.

Complete with signed card. All in all a fantastic package.

Happy Bunny today!

I got it for Christmas (along with a host of other missing-from-my-Bill-Nelson-collection discs) and I must say I am VERY impressed. I love the mini replica of 'The Arcane Eye'!!! Awesome package!!!

Mike

I remember the trepidation of buying this first time round in 84. Bill had published the track titles pre-release in the ABM magazine, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the box set...4 albums..book...postcards...wow! All I can say is well done to Bill and Esoteric for getting this out again. The packaging is just quality, especially with the postcards and book in smaller form. Sound quality is excellent too. Plus it's a real joy to rediscover these tracks. Now all we need is the ABM eps in CD format. Judging by the way Esoteric have presented the re-releases so far, I think they (and Bill) would do a great job with that and have many takers from here.
