Bill Nelson Picture Post Limited CD
Recorded in 2007, Picture Post is an instrumental album created from a soundtrack Bill Nelson was commissioned to write for a documentary called American Stamps, broadcast by the PBS channel.  
 
"It’s an album of ‘miniatures’, 22 short pieces of very detailed, lush sounding instrumental music. The closest I can get to describing it is to say that it combines the keyboard approach of Theatre of Falling Leaves with some of the orchestral textures of The Alchemical Adventures of Sailor Bill. This mixture is sprinkled here and there with electric guitar, sometimes in a slick, jazzy mood, sometimes in a chromium-plated, surf mood. There’s also a touch of banjo and slide guitar. Oh, and a hint of electronica." - Bill Nelson
