Thanks for taking the time to respond Bill. I'm sure though you have better things to do.

In truth I've no documentary evidence that I placed the order. My mistake was not taking a screen grab of the SOS page at the end of the ordering process but I've never needed to before.

Maybe I should pay via Paypal in the future then at least if I delete the e-mail I have somewhere to go to retrieve it.

I also have been neglectful of the forum of late. If I hadn't, I would have seen the warnings of low stock and acted sooner so as I said before "my fault".

I'll maybe e-mail SOS and see if they can see if it got stuck in the ether, so to speak.

500 discs seems too few but more seems too many. It's a shame, as Bill's music deserves to be heard by a wider audience.

Been playing 'Electric Atlas' for weeks. One of my favourite BN vocal albums ever. Absolutely superb.

Agreed. It's one of the better ones in my book. Not to be too nostalgic, but it's reminding me of the more "autobiographical" CD's Bill put out in the "Secret Studio" days. Or, perhaps it's just me. It's hitting the right spots, nonetheless!

As for autobiographical albums, there's a real beauty coming up: 'All That I Remember' is very direct in that each track references a particular event, time or theme from my childhood and youth. It's like a sonic film, an accompaniment, in part, to my book 'Painted From Memory.' I think this may be the next release after 'Loom.' (And it's totally different from that album.) :)

I look forward to whatever the decision to release next. Loom ordered, all is right within my household. Now off to the music conservatory to listen to All Bill, All the Time. :wink:

That is enticing. I look forward to it.

Yes, and when you only make 500 available to your 5,000 fans it's no wonder so many unlucky bastards miss out and why they then appear on ebay selling for ridiculous prices!! Then, inevitably, it's you (the artist) that then complains about that too. And, by the way, I totally agree with you about illegal downloading. How do you square that circle Mr. N?


I know, tell me about it! Those are some of the best albums I've ever released, and yet, years after, they're still in stock. The only thing that explains it, considering that I have well over 5,000 fans on social media, is that they're illegaly downloading albums instead of buying them at source from the artist. And whichever bastard is making them available as illegal downloads wants shafting up the arse with a hot poker! :evil: [/quote]

From the words of one Sonny Bono, "It Ain't Me Babe". LOL. Anyway, I just received my copy of, "Electric Atlas". What a gem!! And, that's just the first listen - second time around as we speak. Love that artwork, Bill. Love listening to your vocals, too!! They seem stronger this time around. Very nice!!

We are now down to the last few remaining copies of this special limited edition CD.
If you wish to purchase a copy please email Lisa in our Mail Order Dept. Do NOT include any payment details at this time.

I was one of the stragglers who had to go this route to get a copy. I placed my order with SOS through Lisa on Nov 26th, credit card was billed and I got a confirmation email on Nov 30. Haven't received a thing yet, but today I got the "Loom" cd I ordered on Dec 10th. Now I'm worried. I just sent an email to Lisa AND SOS but they are on holiday until Jan 6th.

Did anyone else do this same thing to get a copy and have you received it?

Thanks! - John

My Electric Atlas cd arrived here yesterday so I'm all caught up so far. Looking forward to listening to it this week!
