Ben Folds 55 Vault goes live!

6/October/2011 - 18:35

The promised "Ben Folds 55" vault has just gone live with all, erm, 56 tracks!

http://www.benfolds.com/news/big-reveal-ben-folds-fifty-five-vault-tracks-announced

Although slightly more heavy on the B-sides and soundtracks than you sexy die-harders would have liked, it does contain a good selection of demo tracks, previously unheard BFF material, and some choice live versions where the performance was unique (like the 'Stadium' version of Jesusland he played in London).

Bit of a kicker - you can only buy *all* of them, not individual tracks. Bit of a stinker when it costs £18.99 and the 3CD version of the retrospective is only £11.99.

Still, where's my credit card..?

UPDATE: If you're in the US you can buy individual tracks. UK peeps are whole 'album' only, I'm afraid!
