ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SONGS FROM 206 HIGH STREET
(Big Business Monkey, Volume Seven)

1. Overture 2019 (:30) Written and recorded July 2019. Short. Not sweet, though.
2. Wait A Minute #2 (1:24) Written and recorded August 2019. The wind that blows through me is blowing in a new direction.
3. 26 Heavyweight Bleeders On Parade – Extended Version (1:59) Written July 2003. Recorded February 2019. We have to face the men of our time. A hand hangs like a jaw. An arm works like a saw.
4. Heart's Wisdom Has The Power (2:43) Written and recorded January 2019. Or something.
5. Jesco White – Live Practice Performance (2:50) Written August 1994. Recorded April 2019. There were rare occasions where we could hang with anyone.
6. Live Your Life Like You're Alive – January 2019 Remix & Partial Re-recording (4:19) Written and recorded February 2018 and May 2019. You've only got one. Remember?
7. My Own Planet (3:59) Written 1986 by Wayne Coyne & Michael Ivins. Recorded January 2019. If I'd written this song it would sound much like this.
8. Something Deeper Than This Darkness (4:24) Written and recorded January 2019. Lost movement should provoke.
9. I'm Not Where You Are (I'm The Man Who's Done What He Can) (2:44) Written and recorded February 2019. The dream of pursuit.
10. The Shape Of Your Eyes Goes 'Round My Heart – Extended New Version (2:59) Written November 2008. Recorded December 2018. A touch so soft could only have influence on butterflies.
11. To See You Smile – Following The Echo Down Outtake (4:24) Written and recorded May 2014. How can I understand what you mean in the confusion of my movements?
12. Unreleased Fragment (1:48) – Written and recorded June 2016. Never finished (which is why it's a fragment.)
13. Watching Long Distance – Alternate Version (2:46) – Written and recorded June 2014. Remastered and remixed June 2019. From the Following the Echo Down sessions. The old man is clarified by one drop of rain on his balding head.
14. Whoa Jenny, Won't You Skin Me That High Lonesome Voice (3:09) Written and recorded August 1992. Additional vocal and instrumentation added July 2019. From The Haunted Life sessions. Learn it while you're young: Speech isn't always a function of the tongue.
15. Your Jets – Extended Version (4:12) Written and recorded August 2016. Additional instrumentation added January 2019. Remastered August 2019. From the 12 x 1 = Done sessions. This was for her. She never knew. How then could she care?
16. If I Should Disappear – Early previously unreleased version (3:52) Written and recorded February 1997. From the If I Should Fall sessions. Here we are with our feuds, our jealousies, and our sadness.
17. Your World Will Shape My Bones – Extended and remastered version (3:11). Written and recorded June 2016. From the Jackboots On Cobblestone sessions. Sometimes perhaps you don't wan to be a part of me.
18. Stanley The Steamer Live In Concert (5:54) Matrix Remix of live performance at Alston's, Harrisonburg, VA, February 2003. I guess you learned from me, even though you're more free.
19. I Leave Her There Until She Rings 3 Times – Live Practice Performance. (4:04) From April 2017. Remixed and remastered August 2019. She's a rose in a glass of rum.

All songs written and recorded by Jim Shelley, except “My Own Planet” (written by Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins); “Jesco White” (recorded live during an April 2019 practice featuring Randy Simpson – guitar; Jane Firkin – guitar/backing vocal; George Nipe III – bass/backing vocal; Garfield Banks – drums; Jim Shelley – guitar/lead vocal); “Stanley The Steamer” (recorded live in concert at Alston's in Harrisonburg, Virginia, February 2, 2003, featuring Randy Simpson – lead guitar; Jane Firkin – guitar; Bill Bird – bass; Casey Firkin – drums; Jim Shelley – guitar/vocal) and “I Leave Her There Until She Rings 3 Times” (recorded live during an April 2017 practice featuring Garfield Banks – drums; George Nipe III – bass/backing vocal; Jim Shelley – guitar/lead vocal). Yeah, I know...a few of these songs have already appeared on other albums, but if they're on this compilation then it's because I've made them better and like them enough that I want the better version in the world. And yeah. I know they're not all from 206 High Street. But they all ended up there before they left on their long journey to your ears.
