Billy Nicholls is a British singer-songwriter. His psychedelic pop album album "Would You Believe?" was conceived as a British response to the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds". Financial problems prevented the album from being released after it was recorded in the 1960s, but since then it has developed a cult following as a lost pop classic.

    I slept too long on "Would You Believe"... if this music sounds interesting to you at all, don't hesitate to get it, there is stark beauty there.
  • Should have been a game-changer on the brit psych scene. Should have!
  • Genius!
  • Amazing!
  • In a better universe, he's mega popular
  • ''would you believe'' sounds like the lovechild of odessey and oracle & revolver.
  • does anyone have this in v0 or 320? my copy warbles hard & certain parts are indecipherable through the digital glitching.
  • Regardless of Andrew Loog Oldham's original, Pet-Sounds-obsessed intentions, I think Would You Believe has a sound and merit of its own. And personally I think it's above anything the Beach Boys ever did, but that might just be me. A shame that such a great album was conceived over silly "responses". Takes a lot of merit out of Nicholls' work, which is all the more impressive when you consider he was still a teenager when he finished it.
  • Thanks Last.fm for introducing me to Billy's music, and thank you Billy for the music.
  • Sad how he doesn't get that much attention, these tracks are amazing
