Ben Folds The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective on 2LP
Ben Fold's The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective is the long-awaited career-spanning anthology chronicling the musical adventures of pop's quintessential post-modern singer/songwriter/pianist.
The most comprehensive and definitive Ben Folds collection ever assembled, and first-ever domestic overview of Fold's music, The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective is remastered from the original master tapes, bringing together his biggest hits, deep catalog fan favorites, hidden treasures, and collectible rarities while premiering the first newly recorded Ben Folds Five tracks in 11 years.
A perfect point of entry for newcomers as well as a treasure trove for the initiated, the carefully curated 18-track set covers two decades of Ben Folds music, from the break-out hits "Underground" and "Brick" with Ben Folds Five through solo work and unexpected collaborations ranging from "You Don't Know Me" with Regina Spektor to "From Above" (with lyrics by Nick Hornby, author of High Fidelity). The collection closes with "House," one of three new Ben Folds Five songs recorded especially for the retrospective.
