Bill Nelson's 'Trial by Intimacy' to be Reissued

A limited edition reissue of Bill Nelson's 4 disc ambient boxed set 'Trial By Intimacy (The Book of Splendours)' has been announced for reissue. Originally released on Bill's Cocteau Records label in October 1984, 'Trial By Intimacy' comprised recordings made by Bill at his Echo Observatory home studio. Containing around eighty pieces of music, the work presented examples of Bill Nelson's Ambient experiments. 
This newly re-mastered Cocteau Discs edition restores the original elements of the 'Trial By Intimacy' box and is an exact facsimile, reproducing the 48 page book and eight art postcards that featured in the original set. Available on pre-order for 29th October.
