Several Famous Orchestras
(a new compilation from some like-minded people...)

In late January 2003 I proposed a new compilation from some like-minded people, later called Several Famous Orchestras.  This would comprise original recordings from various fans of British musician Bill Nelson and the call would go out via the various mailing lists and web sites which fans frequent on the Internet.

There were 41 submissions from around the world:  United States, Canada, Brazil, England, Scotland, Germany, Sweden, and Japan.

Several Famous Orchestras was released on May 7, 2003.  It is currently out of print.  There are no plans to make it available in the future.
