On 20th July Edsel will release the first ever Ben Folds box set and you could win a copy!
Brick – The Songs Of Ben Folds, 1995–2012 features 13 CDs. It includes all four Ben Folds Five albums (including 2012’s comeback album, The Sound of the Life of the Mind), all of Folds’ solo albums (up until 2012), live recordings, b-sides and other bonus material.
Ben Folds formed Ben Folds Five in 1993. Accompanied by Robert Sledge (bass, synthesizers, backing vocals) and Darren Jessee (drums, backing vocals), with Folds on lead vocals and piano, this outstanding musical trio forged a path as an incendiary live band. At the time it was incredibly unusual to have a so-called ‘punk rock for sissies’ band fronted by a singer-pianist, tapping into out of fashion influences such as Queen, Elton John and Todd Rundgren.
Brick – The Songs of Ben Folds, 1996-2012 features 13 CDs housed in a brick box. In addition to featuring all the Ben Folds Five and Ben Folds’ solo studio albums, the box set also includes the 2002 ‘Ben Folds Live’ album, the live album ‘Songs For Goldfish’ which accompanied the 2005 album ‘Songs For Silverman’, the alternative ‘Seeds’ versions from ‘Stems And Seeds’, and all the bonus tracks, b-sides and rarities from the whole period. The sleevenotes include a new interview by Paul Myers.
