ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WELCOME TO CONCRETE (Expanded Edition)

1999 was perhaps the weirdest year ever for me musically. I used to think of it as a sort of "lost" time when I struggled to find inspiration (and not just to write new songs), but the truth is I recorded some of my most adventurous tracks ever, considering the stuff included here as well as much of the material I created for 2-HEADED GIRL and WRITING ON THE WALL. Surprisingly (at least to me), it actually turned out to be quite a prolific time for me. I guess '99 was, if anything, simply a bridge to the hundreds of songs I'd write and record in the 2000s and 2010s.

This album collects all the previously released tracks from Jim Shelley's two 1999 fan club e.p.'s, WELCOME TO CONCRETE and THE 1999 SPECIAL LISTENER'S CLUB HOLIDAY COMPACT DISC, plus several outtakes from that period.
