Whatever and Ever Amen reissue tracklisting revealed!
12/February/2005 - 11:40
Sony have finally released the tracklisting to the extended reissue of Ben Folds Five's "Whatever and Ever Amen" album, due out at the end of March, and it's not good:
Video Killed the Radio Star
For All the Pretty People
Theme from 'Dr. Pyser'
She Don't Use Jelly
Song for the Dumped
As suspected, "classic lost tracks" translated to a hotch-potch of old B-sides, with the possible exception of "Video Killed the Radio Star" which has never seen a studio version released (though don't put it past them to just throw a live version on there). Why they didn't put on the tracks we all *really* want to hear is a mystery. Sony are still in cahoots with Ben contract-wise, and will own the rights to recordings made for the Five's never-to-be-released 4th studio album.
Are you listening Sony? This was a BAD IDEA and this album is going to SELL A LOT FEWER.
Nevertheless, thanks to Nate for the heads up!
