Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Another Book Of Kills album will soon be available from CDBaby...

Another Book Of Kills album will soon be available from CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify and numerous other outlets. 2005's I Can't Give You Anything But Love was the first BOK album recorded entirely on computer. While I always prefer working with analog in the form of magnetic tape, I Can't Give You Anything But Love is notable for the relative complexity of the arrangements as opposed to earlier BOK albums. The lead song, "This Is The Way Of The World", for example, was composed from 24 separate tracks. But having lots of tracks to record with doesn't necessarily make for a good record, of course. That said, I think I Can't Give You Anything But Love is simply one of my best records and one I worked very hard on. I should note that it is not available today through anywhere other than CDBaby, but you should be able to get it from iTunes very soon.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have been listening to and/or purchasing The Haunted Life. I'm not exactly sure what has spurred this sudden interest in that 1992 album, but it is extremely gratifying to know that there is a small groundswell of interest in what I consider one of my very finest musical achievements. Thank you very very much.
