Nelson continues to expand his palette.

"After a long stretch of instrumental albums, Bill Nelson brings his voice back to the fore.With "Blue Moons & Laughing Guitars", he's back to a song-based theme. Originally, this was to be recorded with a full band. But upon putting things together, things fell apart and he released his solo version.Don't think "solo" as a guy sitting with a guitar & singing. Bill has the full-group effect, playing synthesizer, drums, and other instruments getting a rich, full sound.Highlights are "God Man Slain", "Angel in My System" and "Wings & Everything".If you're a Nelson fan, this is a must. If you're not a Nelson fan, this can be a good introduction."

"One of my solo faves from BN. This record absolutely cooks with guitar work even though it is almost 10 yrs old. ...And the great guitar band experiment will not happen after all... due to various dark forces. So what. Bill spent 5-6 years with BBD and the past 25 years without them.
I have also waited for years for the magic ride back to the 70's but it ain't gonna happen. Bill has moved on, but can rip a solo as well as any time in the past. He is wandering through various churches of thought and concept today , not just kneeling at the altar of rock."
Another Bill Nelson Gem!!

"On this album while writing some of the most romantic songs of the decade, Bill has also sythesized the strongest aspects of his many styles from the guitar heroics of his early days to the electronic aspects of songs like the Real Adventure. Of the 16 songs,I have my favorites: (Ancient Guitars, New Moon Rising, Spinning round) -14 of them I would rate as very good to excellent. Blue Moons is one of those albums that gets better with each listening. Although intended as a Demo the sound quality is quite good, (a couple of spots the vocals could have been a bit louder).... It baffles me the major labels haven't invested the money in one of the most talented and prolific songwriters of the modern era, not to mention great guitarists.... Enjoy!!! GMX"
