Bill Nelson
Noise Candy

Originally released in 2002 on the Tone Swoon imprint, the set was available for a matter of months before the distributors ceased to exist. With copies extremely difficult to find, Noise Candy has since gained a legendary status amongst Bill Nelson fans. This was a fascinating project that gathered together a host of recordings made by Bill at his various home studios between 1990 and 2000. This Cocteau Discs limited edition reissue restores the album artwork and is presented in the same box format as the original 2002 release. Featuring 121 tracks, the set comprised 6 CDs of songs and instrumental music, each CD an album in its own right and entitled variously Old Man Future Blows The Blues, Stargazing With Ranger Bill, Sunflower Dairy Product, King Frankenstein, Console and Playtime.
