He emerged a year later with Dreamies, one of the finest pieces of experimental pop from the era. Unlike the Beatles' White Album collage, though, the pair of sidelong, 26-minute epics - "Program Ten" and "Program Eleven" (as if progressing directly from "Revolution Number 9") - that Holt created were much more than symbolic representations of the chaotic times. At its heart, the album is a blend of folk and pop/rock, and in many respects, Dreamies fits in with the singer/songwriter scene that flowered in the early '70s.
Dreamies is an experimental music album by Bill Holt, released in 1974. The album consists of two long tracks (originally one on each side of the record) called "Program 10" and "Program 11", a reference to the Beatles' "Revolution Dreamies includes excerpts of radio and television broadcasts as well as samples taken from recordings by the Beatles.
Listen free to Bill Holt – Dreamies. I made this album in 1974 after leaving my job at 3M Company. It was quite a leap of faith to go from ten years as a corporate man to life in the unknown world of artist musician. But the yearning was so strong I could not resist. The synth was a brand new, never before instrument back then. I purchased a Moog Sonic Six, an Ovation acoustic guitar, a bunch of recording equipment, set up my own recording studio in my basement and spent a year trying to express the world as it was around me. I never really made music before this .
And I'm equally happy that he's making new music today, which I look forward to hearing whenever it's released. 6 people found this helpful.
