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*)
