Electric66 I just love the new take on Photograph and Everyone's hero. the sound is modern but the memories for me are still the same. A wonderful start to an excellent album. I'm no musician, my brother is a lead guitarist (60) but I can recognise the lead and other instruments to every song. Bill's music has taken me through so many chapters in my life. please don't stop recording Bill. Thank you!

STEWART HEMINGWAY Loved the original album and love this one two. Takes me back to the days of Ken & Betty and the Record Bar in Wakefield when Bill used to call in on occasion.
Although Bill tends to release too many albums this is one of his most accessible and enjoyable of his releases in recent years and his guitar playing is still as fluid and translucent as ever Favorite track: New Northern Dreamer.

Slumberlite As much as I love Bill's instrumental work, I'm a total fool for his vocals. This album is just a joy to listen to and being asked to pick a favorite is like setting a box of chocolates in front of me. Lots of uhming and aahing. Favorite track: A Month Without A Moon (Jupiter In Sagittarius).

Peter Fearnley Brilliant sequel - almost 50 years on - to Bill's very first album, which was recorded in a bedroom (a.k.a. Holyground Studio) in Wakefield. He probably recorded this one in his home studio too - but it could just as easily have been recorded at Abbey Road. Sounds magnificent. Keep dreaming Bill - and don't worry about the beam! Favorite track: New Northern Dreamer.

bailey234 Great album. Just how much better would it have been with a set of supporting (session?) musicians?? Favorite track: Photograph: A New Beginning.

Tim The highlight of a great year of Bill Nelson albums. This showcases the slightly whimsical dream pop aspect of his work with some of his best recent writing. Favorite track: New Northern Dreamer.

about

'New Northern Dream' is a sequel to 'Northern Dream,' the album I recorded in 1970 and released independently in 1971. It brings a new perspective to the album's concept with totally new songs but also some direct references to material on the original album. It's a fusion of my early '70s style with my more current sounds. The album has an 8-page booklet with some photographs by Martin Bostock reproducing some of the original album's settings.

IMPORTANT
This download includes all of the artwork for you to print and a copy of Bill's personal listening notes which give a background to each track.
