I was at a conference yesterday, and before a seminar, checked my email and FB, and saw Bill's announcement there were a few copies available. I thought about waiting until I got home... I'm glad I ordered right then and there. That was another fast sell-out.

£455 for a Cd......... it's a mad world.....

Admittedly a Bill Nelson CD.... so valuable anyway...... but £455...?

I could buy a decent Eastwood Guitar for that, delivered to Australia.

There seems to be a perennial problem with the quantity of Bill's CDs... either too few as in this case or too many of some of the more esoteric ones... (i like them all......) Flipping difficult for Bill to judge how popular each one will be. To maximise income they all need to sell but if there is still a strong demand after they sell out as in this case, that is lost potential income. Probably about 750 of New Northern Dream would have sold (with 250 plus going at the Launch.) This is what is difficult for the independent artist trying to earn a crust but being unable to afford to sit on excess stock.

Maybe you could try a crowd funding model Bill. ? A few Australian musicians have done that so they can cover the cost of production. For some of them that is the only way they can afford to put out a CD now......

My gratitude and sincere thanks to everyone who made getting a copy of this CD possible.
