Iconography - Bill Nelson's Orchestra Arcana

Iconography
NEW REMASTERED EDITION OF THE DEBUT ALBUM BY BILL NELSON’S ORCHESTRA ARCANA – UNAVAILABLE FOR OVER TEN YEARS
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
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, "ICONOGRAPHY”. The album was issued in 1986 credited to ORCHESTRA ARCANA, due to the contractual situation Bill found himself in with CBS Records. The music within comprises recordings made at Bill’s Echo Observatory home studio in 1984 and 1985.
BILL NELSON reflected on the album thus; "Whilst these recordings are "lo fi” in nature, I have always been fond of them. These recordings serve as a reminder that expensive technology isn’t always the key to creativity”.
"Iconography” is a fine album that remains fascinating and engaging nearly three decades later.
The Cocteau Discs edition fully restores the original album artwork and features a new note by Bill Nelson. It also features two bonus tracks from the "Sex Psyche Etc.” EP released in 1985.

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.”
