I'M EXTREMELY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE RE-ISSUE OF TWO OF MY FAVOURITE ALBUMS: 'THE ALCHEMICAL ADVENTURES OF SAILOR BILL' AND 'NEPTUNE'S GALAXY.' THESE LONG OUT OF PRINT ALBUMS ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY FORM FROM MY BANDCAMP PAGE. :D

These two albums compliment each other perfectly, painting an affectionate and nostalgic picture of the English coast, particularly as remembered from my childhood and teenage life in Yorkshire. I think that 'Sailor Bill' contains some of my best songwriting and compositions and it has come to define the more romantic aspects of my work. I hope that those of you who missed out on the original releases will find lots to enjoy. :wink: :) The albums are available in high quality Flac format or as MP3s. Each album comes with downloadable PDFs of the original artwork.

Here is the link for 'The Alchemical Adventures Of Sailor Bill' :

Two of my favourite albums ever, especially Neptunes Galaxy. I know Epic is an overused term these days but... Enjoy, everyone.

Terrific, Bill.

I know there are many who missed these two during the original release. They'll be very happy to be able to download them.

And then there are those who weren't even around here the first time they were released, who'll be happy as well.

Downloading Neptune's Galaxy as I type. I've waited oh so long for this one!

I hope this model is working for you, Bill. It's great to finally have access to your recordings that I've missed out on, but in a way by which you can be paid directly. I am really looking forward to more! (Arcadian Salon, next perhaps?)

Cheers,

Lee

Thank you, Bill!
Just finished purchasing the download for Sailor Bill, to listen to while finishing my day at the office (listened to Neptune's during Lunch!). I'm so thrilled to finally have the chance to listen to these gems!

Cheers,
Roger

Each of these are superb, but as a pair they may well be these best Bill has produced. So far of course!

I'm lucky enough to own both on cd, but if you don't make sure that you download them now. You will not be disappointed.

In BN's opinion these are two of his favourites.

In my opinion (and I have said this before) these, as companion pieces, are essential, in my opinion, quintessential works that anyone who is discovering and exploring BN's work should hear.

Good to see them becoming legitimately available once more......
