Luminous - Bill Nelson

Luminous
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS imprint Cocteau Discs, the home of BILL NELSON’s catalogue between 1971 and 2001, continues their series of ongoing releases with the release of a re-mastered edition of the album, "Luminous” from 1990. The album has been unavailable for over 20 years and was described by BILL NELSON as "A fragment from my home studio sketchbook. A collection of previously unreleased songs which have been preserved in their original raw state. The rule was to use only first takes and to move from the initial idea to final mix in as short a time as possible. Although the recordings were made with the use of limited technology, I hope that the result captures something of the charm and innocence of spontaneous improvised songwriting…”

Press:-

"Post-Bop Bill delivers the dreamy synthpop goodies. He was the sparkling axe victimiser in Be Bop Deluxe, the uniformed new waver in Bill Nelson’s Red Noise, and a solo artist and producer who very nearly fit the 80s perfectly with his dreamy synthpop.”

Practically Wired (or how I became guitar boy)
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS imprint Cocteau Discs, the home of BILL NELSON’s catalogue between 1971 and 2001, continues their series of on-going releases with the release of a newly remastered edition of the album, "PRACTICALLY WIRED (or HOW I BECAME GUITAR BOY)” from 1995.

The album has been unavailable for over ten years and was described by BILL NELSON as "An instrumental guitar album – The plan was to record very quickly and spontaneously; no preparation except for a list of moods and titles. ‘Practically Wired’ is a Polaroid snapshot of a personal paradise…a dream of electric guitars”.

The Cocteau Discs edition fully restores the original artwork and features a new note by Bill Nelson.

Press:-

"Don't expect much languid Duane Eddy twanging - Nelson gets mad-busy from the off as frenetic opener Roses And Rocketships explodes in a barrage of cut-ups, samples and twists. In fact, it's a relief when the album calms down, easing into what might be called grooves and allowing him to charm over the seductive, mid-tempo Pink Buddha Blues, or the ultra-mellow Kid With Cowboy Tie. Perhaps a spirtual heir to Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow, and admirably ambient". (7/10*)
