Ever since breaking out of the alternative music scene with his piano, his band Ben Folds Five and the wildly popular hits “Underground” in 1995 and “Brick” in 1997, followed by a successful solo career, Ben Folds has maintained a strong presence as a well respected, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter of his era. With over 3 million units sold to date over his 15 year recording career, Ben Folds’ wry, wise and infectiously melodic keyboard-centric storytelling style continues to delight his fervent fan base worldwide. Digging through his endless archive of material, Ben has compiled “The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective (1995-2011).” This is the first multi-disc career-spanning retrospective featuring over 60 hits, live and rarities tracks spanning Ben Folds’ entire recording career from 1991 to 2011, including three brand new tracks with Ben Folds Five! This 3 CD version (covering the years 1991-2011) features 2 additional CD’s containing approximately 40 previously unreleased and rare home demos, studio outtakes, alternate mixes, live tracks and three brand new tracks by Ben Folds Five. This 3 disc set is an exciting audio treasure trove for Ben’s longtime fans as well as an alternative insight for welcome newcomers to the “fold”. Along with the 3 CD expanded edition, fans will get access to the “Ben Folds 55 Vault”, of which 5 bonus tracks are included for download with the purchase of this edition.
