An absolute classic. Enjoy!


It really is.

Some of it puts me in a slightly strange mood that is indescribable, like what most of 'Clocks & Dials' does.

'Tin Sings Bones,' (which has featured in my live concerts in recent years,)


This has entered my head and will never leave. It seems to be playing constantly. Hooks galore.

One of my favourite songs of yours, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Subtle differences: There's something different in the drums department and some of the keyboard sounds are different. Seems louder somewhere in there, this version.

Purchased over at Bandcamp, and ready to glide through the tracks promptly after work today (in the office for another hour, then freedom!).

Also noticed that Orpheus is placed on the front page of Bandcamp in their "Discover" section as a Best-Seller for Today! Congrats, Bill!

Cheers,
Roger

Hi, Felix, get it downloaded, you are in for an absolute treat.

Possibly the best Nelsonica album out there.

Can remember the second last night of the 2005 tour and there were only 8 copies left for sale, and knew merry hell was going to happen on the Monday, when any extras left over were going to be sold on the dreamsville store on the site.

Don't think there were any left on the day.

Aye, nae worries Eddie, For sure it will be done, along with Neptune's Galaxy which I've been waiting a long time to hear. Of the two tracks I've heard so far (someone posted Mariner's Blues on Facebook a while back....), I would have to say the album sounds as amazing as I had hoped 8)

Just downloaded. Thanks for making this one available Bill. Hope you will consider releasing Plaything. One of the few that I have missed. Many thanks for releasing Orpheus in Ultraland!

i was so annoyed at miising out on this when it was first released and wasnt going to pay crazy ebay prices, so to finally hear this album has been a treat, and what a fantastic album it is too. Thanks for making it available.
