Esoteric
Recordings announce a new release on their recently launched Cocteau Discs
imprint, a limited edition reissue of BILL NELSON’s classic 4 disc ambient
boxed set “TRIAL BY INTIMACY (The Book of Splendours)”.

 

The
set was originally released on Bill’s Cocteau Records label in October 1984 and
comprised recordings made by Bill at his Echo Observatory home studio. Comprising
some eighty pieces of music, the set was a fine example of Bill Nelson’s grasp
of Ambient music and has subsequently been hailed as a ground-breaking work.

 

Long
deleted, the set is made available once more with this newly re-mastered
Cocteau Discs edition. The new release fully restores the original elements of
the “TRIAL BY INTIMACY” box and is an exact facsimile, reproducing a 32 page
book and eight art postcards that featured in the original set.
