Synopsis

Album Description
Grandaddyís Concrete Dunes are the rare and critically accliamed recordings that have heralded a movement towards the groupís vintage electronic textures. The colection includes 2 previously unreleased songs in addition to 6 import only tracks plus select tracks off their debut e.p. A Pretty Mess By This One Band. Also included is an out of print gem, "Why Would I Want to Die". Concrete Dunes documents the early development of Grandaddyís evolved space rock sounds, which are further in evidence on 2000's superb Sophtware Slump.

CD Reviews

Not released by the band

"I love this album...however I would NEVER buy it, it is a re-release of a previous grandaddy album, that the band did not want produced, and can be obtained from the bands website, grandaddylandscape.com."
Concrete Dunes...
C. Chambers | 02/22/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Please be advised that this album arrives without "Grandaddys'" input or knowledge. It consists primarily of The Broken Down Comforter Collection, which can be found in stores for less money than Concrete Dunes is selling for. The band was not involved in the decision to rerelease or repackage this album either. I think that it's probably inappropriate for me to discourage you from buying it, so I won't actually verbalize that sentiment. But you can find all these b-sides on their various singles.
A FAN"

"Being a huge Grandaddy fan I couldn't help but buy this album. I assume anyone considering purchasing this cd already has the three proper Grandaddy LPs. If not get those first. They are all brilliant. If you still need a grandaddy fix after those buy "Broken down comforter collection". It is essentially the same disk as this missing a couple of tracks. I know what you're thinking, if there's less tracks why get bdcc instead? The reason why is that concrete dunes was released without grandaddy's permission (as opposed to bdcc) and the extra couple of tracks aren't worth selling your soul to some evil record company exec. That said all the songs are grandaddelicious so you won't be dissapointed if you do purchase."
