Ben Folds’ 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 Folds’ music, The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective is remastered from original master tapes, bringing together Ben’s biggest hits, previously unreleased material, and a newly recorded Ben Folds Five track.
Available as a double LP on high quality vinyl, The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective features liner notes and track-by-track song annotations by Ben Folds.
A perfect point of entry for newcomers as well as a treasure trove for the initiated, the double LP is a carefully curated 18-track distillation of the essence of 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”). Pointing to the future, side Four closes with “House,” a brand new Ben Folds Five song recorded especially for the retrospective. From the Label
