Love the concept, love the detail, the thought, the care. So looking forward to this treat. Bill truly does spoil us!

Wow. Sounds amazing. Can't wait.

Of course this means Joy and Palace will have to take a breather...

This is the most eagerly awaited release of Bill's for some years for me.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but I know it is going to be special 8)

These notes sound good - more on the secular side.

Am really looking forward to Spinning Pentagrams! :D

Am enjoying listening to CD 1 as I type this ... recently had my 1980s Mission Cyrus Two amp repaired and restored to its former glory. It has a lovely warm sound that suits your CDs Bill – perhaps its the minimalist retro styling. Just a volume control and source selector switch. No extraneous electronics to colour the sound.

Liking the track Rainboy and whistledog .. where do you get the inspiration for your song titles from?

Oh, sometimes they just seem to materialise out of thin air, sometimes the inspiration comes from a visual cue, sometimes its an adaptation of a common figure of speech, modified slightly. Other times it can be inspired by a movie or book, a line of dialogue, an overheard conversation. I have a stck of notebooks, some going back many years, in which I've jotted down various ideas for titles, band names, lines of lyrics, etc. I look back through these when I'm stuck for a title or a lyric phrase. Many of them I abandon as not being as good as they seemed at the time I wrote them down...but some jump out at me and I use them! :wink:
