Joan Shelley


I’ve never complained about music from Joan Shelley. Never. I have purchased her vinyl only recordings (a record day special last year) and waited patiently for each new cd release.

So, what’s up with this Bandcamp only recording?

Still drawing a blank? Well have a listen to a few of her songs (mind your toes, they are prone to tap during these videos)

SO - why is this only being released on Bandcamp? I’ve just purchased my copy. Any thoughts?
