And here is plain to see, the reality of the situation :shock: :o :(

That there should be boxes left of supremely brilliant guitar instrumental albums such as........

Illuminated At Dusk
Silvertone Fountains
Mazda Kaleidoscope
..............and even And We Fell Into A Dream or Gleaming Without Lights :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Golden Melodies Of Tomorrow :shock:

I hate to agree with this as it may severely limit my ability to purchase future Cds if I miss the boat but yeah...this should not be; this stuff has to be sold...it's ridiculous in fact.
500 it must be....have to bite the sandwich.

Regarding the wider availability of stock. SOS is not a distributor and we have no manpower to get involved with liaising with the likes of Amazon and others to dispatch stock, chase payment, account for sales and returns and generally manage the situation. We do our best with the resources available.

Regardless of other outlets stocking CDs, marketing is the missing part of the jigsaw puzzle. Bill's management don't do any marketing as that's not their role nor do SOS. Traditionally that would be the role of the record company but as Bill operates his own self-published label, there are no marketing people. It's a cottage industry.
So, whilst we all agree Bill's music is superb and deserves a wider exposure, it is what it is.
Also, do remember that events such as Nelsonica are planned and managed by the Nelsonica Team of volunteers who all have day jobs and provide their time free of charge. There's nobody sat by a telephone or answering emails co-ordinating everything.
Many people on this forum have helped market Bill's work off their own back simply by emailing radio stations or news media and mentioning albums in other forums. That's all great stuff and long may it continue.
Spread the word!

Paul.
