pdsenkans64 It takes me back to the 1980s when I was in my teens and twenties. I was a struggling musician then. I did not have the money to buy all the singles and LPs that I desired. But now I can! Thank you Bill.
Favorite track: Tony Goes To Tokyo (And Rides The Bullet Train).

trashs Bill has created a lot of wonderful material throughout his career but these pieces hold a special place in my heart as I remember the thrill of receiving the occasional Acquitted By Mirrors ep and listening to these home made creations full of experimentation and whimsy. Just sublime.

about

‘Acquitted By Mirrors’ was a Bill Nelson Fan Club magazine published between 1982 and 1990. By its 13th issue in 1986, seven EPs – all of which were recorded on either 4-track or 8-track analogue recording equipment at The Echo Observatory (Bill’s home studio) – were issued exclusively to fan club members in conjunction with alternating issues of the magazine. While some of the tracks can now be found on various CD releases, many others are making their long-awaited CD debut with this release.
As well as having all the fan club EPs together on CD for the first time, ‘Transcorder’ also includes hard-to-find B-sides and rare tracks. The album ultimately closes with five previously unreleased instrumentals that were recorded at The Echo Observatory during the mid-1980s.

This download comes complete with album artwork as PDF files.
