I was lucky enough to buy these two when they were first released. I've always liked both of them. The Lighthouse Keepers Waltz kinda blew me away when I first heard it. The rest of the album is amazing too. Like the little musical 'tribute' to The Shadows and Beat groups in The Ocean, The Night And The Big, Big Wheel.

And the first orchestral surge in Sailor Blue, reminds me of John Barry, in 'Bond' mode 8)

Whilst it's a shame that these albums are only being re-issued as downloads, I fully understand and support Bill's decision to do so :)

Haven't listened to Sailor Bill for a while...hmm, house to myself today, think a long soak in the bath with this turned up a tad will do just nicely.... 8)

Becoming impatient to hear 'Neptune's Galaxy'

What happens if my computer messes up during downloading? Do I have to pay again?
