Description

Esoteric Recordings imprint Cocteau Discs, dedicated to the work of BILL NELSON, are proud to announce the release of a deluxe 3 disc clamshell boxed set limited edition collection - Dreamy Screens: Soundtracks from the Echo Observatory. The set features three albums, all recorded at Bill Nelsons Yorkshire home studio, the Echo Observatory, in 1981 and 1982 Sounding the Ritual Echo (originally issued as a limited edition bonus LP with Bills 1981 album Quit Dreaming and Get On the Beam), Das Kabinet (a soundtrack to a production of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari by The Yorkshire Actors Company issued as an LP on Bills Cocteau label in 1981) and La Belle et La Bete first issued as a limited edition bonus LP with Bills 1982 album The Love That Whirls). All of the recordings featured in this set demonstrate Bills creativity utilising primitive recording equipment by todays standards. As Bill has stated; The music was recorded on a domestic four track machine. A high degree of self-discipline was in order. All of the recordings forming Dreamy Screens have now become highly regarded in the prolific discography of Bill Nelson. Long out of print, this Cocteau Discs re-mastered limited edition presents these three wonderful albums once again, restoring the original artwork in the collection in a clamshell boxed set.
