Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills


The very first Book of Kills album (originally issued as cassette-only) BLOOM OR DIE? is now available on Spotify. Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, Slacker, Tidal, and all the others will shortly follow suit. To this day, I know two long-time BOK listeners who say this is the best Book of Kills album of all time, but I'm sorry to have to say that they are very, very wrong. It's not even close. In fact, I doubt I've listened to BLOOM OR DIE? in ten years. But, to each his own, I say!

“We don't need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.” -- Lloyd Alexander
