about

'Songs Of The Blossom Tree Optimists' was originally released on CD in 2011...

"This album can be appreciated as a companion piece to 'Model Village' or as an independent project in its own right. It is a song-based album with the emphasis on vocals and acoustic guitar but with added orchestral colours and percussion to give a neo-baroque flavour to the music.
The album could also be thought of as the missing link between 'Northern Dream', 'Rosewood' and 'The Alchemical Adventures of Sailor Bill'.

"It's a warm, heartfelt fantasia with lots of detail and cross-references. An album for grown-ups who can appreciate music that paints pictures.

"A personal homage to a kind of long-lost, romantic, utopian 'Englishness'. Many of the songs on these albums attempt to capture an elusive, ancient spirit, a spirit of a place inhabited by quiet ghosts unique to old Albion, an English Arcadia, an imaginary Eden that only exists in the gentle souls of artists and poets. It's quite artificial, dreamlike, ethereal, a figment of Faerie, a Midsummer Night's Dream...Beautiful, fragile and utterly, seductively unreal." - Bill Nelson

The album comes complete with album artwork as PDF files.
