Two albums on one CD…



 RARE 1989 CD Enigma/Cocteau Records 7 73374-2 / USA / UPC 1877733742 

Heres a fantastic and incredibly rare title from the vast catalogue of art-rock genius BILL NELSON. Its a 2-on-1 CD released in  1989 by Enigma Records, now long unavailable. 

53 dizzying tracks, 69 minutes of Nelson bliss. A must hear.


This disc brings together two vintage Nelson records from the early Eighties, originally issued on his own Cocteau label, both original scores for theatrical productions. Das Kabinett (1981) was composed for the Yorkshire Actors Company stage version of Robert Weine’s classic silent film The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari. Recorded the following year, La Belle et la Bete was the score to a stage production inspired by Jean Cocteau’s film of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast (later turned into a cheeseball cartoon musical by Disney). 

The music for both pieces is astonishing… performed by Nelson on a panoply of electronic instruments (all thoughtfully listed inside), flawlessly encapsulating the many moods and images of two very different dramatic works. Serious fans will be utterly blown away by the intensity and beauty of these scores. Unfortunately, this CD has been out of print and completely unavailable for many years. 


Don’t miss your chance to own a copy! 



Bill Nelson:

I worked very closely with the Yorkshire Actors Company on the music to their production of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari.   They developed the play simultaneously with my developing the music. They'd improvise a particular scene over and over until things started to click. I'd time it and make notes, then go away and spend a couple of days doing that 10 minutes of music.       Then I'd take it back for a run-through and make adjustments. It was very laborious, and took ages. 

I hadn't planned to release an album; it was just going to be a tape which they would use on their tour. When it was finished, and I saw the play for the first time with the music, I had to put it out; it was worth more people hearing it than would only see the play.
