Concrete Dunes is a compilation album by American indie rock band Grandaddy, released in October 2002 by record label Lakeshore.[1] This album has created some controversy among fans of the band, as this was not released with the band's permission.[citation needed] Like The Broken Down Comforter Collection, it collects tracks from the band's early releases.[1]
