Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills


Single #10 has been completed. CDs will be mailed tomorrow.

It turned out that I had more recording to do today and then, of course, I had to mix and master both songs, finish up the insert and package it and so forth, so I'm thankful that I had the time to do everything.

I hope you'll enjoy this one. As always, I put a lot of sweat and love into it.

It's funny how narrow my world becomes when I am focused on writing and recording new material. Then, when everything's done, for a day or two, I feel as though I'm in some strange sort of limbo between the dreamworld of creation and the mundane world of the everyday.

Now I'll take a couple weeks off and then start figuring out what path I need to travel to create single #11.

From the "They don't make 'em like they used to" file: On this day in 1964, during the first night of sessions for his newest album, BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME (one of my most favorite records of all-time), Bob Dylan recorded FOURTEEN tracks! The record wouldn't be released until March of 1965.

"BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME is possibly the most influential album of its era. Almost everything to come in contemporary popular song can be found therein." -- Clinton Heyland
