The charming and lyrical Songs Of The Blossom Tree Optimists from 2012 is a vocal album.
The album grew out of Bill Nelson's early recordings for Model Village, once he'd decided to make that album entirely instrumental.
Songs Of The Blossom Tree Optimists was the second release that Nelson designated as part of his ‘Super Listener Series’.
