Apparently this was supposed to be released as the second LP by BILL NELSON'S RED NOISE. Bill Nelson liner notes March 1981: "The music on this [original vinyl 1981] album was written during the latter part of 1978 and recorded at intervals between February and June of 1979. That it is only now publicly available I find ironic. Nevertheless, I am pleased that these tracks, which constitute approximately two thirds of the total material recorded for the album, have finally been aquitted... by mirrors if not by justice."

First available as a free LP with initial copies of "QUIT DREAMING AND GET ON THE BEAM".

"Sounding the Ritual Echo was recorded in the privacy of my own home on broken or faulty tape machines & speakers, each track possessing its own technological deformity. For this I offer no apology as the music owes its existence to a very personal & selfish obsession. As a direct result, some pieces will require a little patience. This album, originally released in a limited edition in 1981 as a bonus album for Quit Dreaming & Get on the Beam , was the first in a series of purely instrumental albums issued by Cocteau Records from the archives of the Echo Observatory."

I am not sure what album this single was supposed to promote (if any), but it appears as the first track on THE TWO-FOLD ASPECT OF EVERYTHING. It originally appeared on "CHIMERA" in 1983 but that album isn't mention on the single. Perhaps it was a fan club-only single?

Bill Nelson autumn 1984: "Record One subtitled "Eaux d'Artifice" is a collection of remixes, obscure B-sides and rarities never before presented in album form. Record Two subtitled "Confessions Of A Four Track Mind" is made up of domestically recorded four-track demo tapes which due to lack of time were never developed further. Although their technical qualities are somewhat dubious, those songs are presented here in their charmingly naive and natural state."

Bill Nelson liner notes Oct 1984: "Although recorded on 'low-tech' domestic equipment, these eighty-three pieces of music are not to be confused with 'demo-tapes' but as a continuation oof the process begun in 1979-1980 with my "Sounding The Ritual Echo" album. The set is presented unpolished and complete with all its technical deformities for which I offer no apology. Despite or perhaps because of this, these previously unreleased pieces have become very dear to my heart."
