The track 'The Birds In The Sky Say Hi!' is Beautiful.

At last!

Giving it a spin right now, glorious :D

However, at the Metropolis gig Bill sang "Wonder Of The Moment" with a 3rd verse, Mr N is there a longer version of this fantastic song ?

Would you ever record a longer version ?

Yes....indeed - have just played from start to finish....The Wonder Of The Moment is just sublime.....Relaxin' with Bill - superb and the closing Moon Rocket Highway has some of the best guitar running all the way through.....what a great album - rich pickings throughout...the only reason I haven't listened to this for ages is due to more recent stuff....wonderful!

Bill did play the extended version live several years ago on the Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6 show it’s a stunning version.

Just a note to you all:
Bill's Luxury Lodge is still in the Bandcamp Top 8 Bestsellers today!
WooHoo! This gets him extra click-throughs, and potential new sales!


Cheers,
Roger

Bill, thank you for releasing Luxury Lodge. Along with Plaything, never thought I would be able to hear these two and I am thankful for you and Bandcamp in making this possible.

That's pretty rad. I'd be curious to see the web traffic spike produced by that kind of unexpected advertising.

"Flux of Desire" is one of my most favorite tracks ever. Worth the price of admission alone.

It's great to see folks discovering this album! It combines some of the old songwriting styles with a new vision and energy somehow. It surprised me a bit when it came out, the ease Bill has of crafting a perfect pop song.

I've come back to this album a lot when I want to play a Bill CD, but can't decide which one.

Tom

Do you have any plans to re-release the Demonstrations of Affection set at any stage? My cassettes have got a bit mangled and a download would be great.
