Fear + Whiskey
Jim Shelley


As of this upload, this song was performed just about to the day (give or take three days) five years ago. This is a relatively early incarnation of Fear + Whiskey with Jeff Lown on drums and Amy Bugg on bass. Recorded at Bugg's Place on November 13, 2010. Since the early 2000s, I'd more or less stopped singing this song in favor of George Nipe III. However, since George wasn't in this band (at least at the time), I started singing it again. Always one of the more requested songs I have ever written, this is the third version posted on the Audio page, but it seems there are always a few Book of Kills listeners who like to have copies of the song they don't already possess. There's a little bit of overload on the vocals that came from the sound system, but it's not bad. Newly remastered.

If you enjoy listening to this Book of Kills track, as well as dozens of other performances here on the audio page, please turn others onto Jim Shelley and Book of Kills and make sure to stream/download lots and lots and lots of BOK songs on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon and other great online music stores!
