    The First Live Album From The "Vintage" Years Of Ben Folds Five

    In 1997, PBS began airing
    Sessions at West 54th, a program
    far removed from the live music
    fare aimed at the older set that
    one usually finds on the network.
    Instead, Sessions at West 54th
    brought the hottest and hippest
    acts to New York to perform
    live in front of a studio audience.
    And one of the first acts asked
    to appear was Ben Folds Five. Which was a very big deal to the
    leader of the band. "I viewed it as an equal to a classic BBC live music
    television show," says Ben Folds. "I walked into it thinking, 'This is the
    one I leave [behind],' because it felt like some kind of a time capsule

    Now, we at Real Gone Music are thrilled to present the complete
    performance by Ben Folds Five as recorded at Sony Music Studios.
    This 2-LP release represents the first live album to be released
    in either format from the "vintage" years of the trio (consisting of
    Folds, drummer Darren Jessee and bassist Robert Sledge). Among
    the 15 tunes are three from the group's self-titled debut, nine from
    their then-current release Whatever and Ever Amen featuring their hit
    "Battle of Who Could Care Less," and three songs that had not been
    released at the time ("Emaline," "Theme from 'Dr. Pyser'," and their
    radically reimagined cover of Flaming Lips' "She Don't Use Jelly"). Folds
    and crew were always a great live band-they even recorded their
    studio albums in a largely live setting-but this performance crackles
    with palpable
    intensity, brought
    home by this
    flawless fidelity.
    But don't take
    our word for
    it-as Folds says
    in Bill Kopp's
    liner notes that
    the release,
    "That gig was
    pretty special."

    Ben Folds Five - Live

    ImAVeePee Records/Sony Music is proud to release Ben Folds Five Live, the
    rst live album from piano-pop trio Ben Folds Five. Recorded in 2012 on their
    rst tour in more than a decade, this new set - available on CD and doublevinyl - will be the perfect prelude to the band's spot on the Last Summer on
    Earth Tour, which will see Ben Folds Five lling amphitheaters across America
    alongside Barenaked Ladies and Guster.

    For longtime fans of Ben Folds' biting, piano-based power-pop songs, the
    past two years have been full of excitement. In 2011, Folds reunited with
    bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee to record the rst new
    Ben Folds Five songs since 1999 for the career-spanning compilation The
    Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective. Inspired by the collaborative spark
    after so many years apart, the trio reconvened in Folds' Nashville studio to
    record their fourth studio album, The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind. The
    album was an immediate hit, peaking within Billboard's Top 10 - the band's
    highest-charting release.

    Ben Folds Five consistently thrills audiences with their high energy performances, and Ben Folds Five Live captures the band in top form across four
    continents through 2012 and 2013. The band deliver powerful renditions of
    their most beloved classics like "Jackson Cannery," "Brick" and "Song For The
    Dumped" as well as new hits from The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, including "Do It Anyway," "Draw A Crowd" and "Sky High."

    It's Like This

    This lovely set of intimately arranged and meticulously recorded covers, originally issued in 2000, is precisely the kind of semi-obscure album in need of a quality all-analog reissueThe superbly natural sound produced by this record is what spending big bucks on an audio system is all about. Set the volume appropriately and Ms. Jones'll draw you into the studio for a personal song recitalThis is one to savor. Music = 9/11; Sound = 10/11 Michael Fremer,

    this effort from 2000 shows Jones conjuring such magic with the material that she deserves as much attention for reworking standards as do Carly Simon or Linda Ronstadt. Kicking off with Steely Dan's 'Show Biz Kids,' and with appearances by Joe Jackson and Ben Folds, among the highpoints is the Beatles' 'For No One' that ranks as among the finest Beatles cover ever. And considering that they number in the tens of thousands, that's about as high as praise gets. Recording = 5/5; Performances = 5/5 Album of the Month Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, April 2008

    The Rickie Lee Jones 45rpm is AWESOME UNREAL AMAZING!!! I have to get a backup copy. I'll play this one to death. Danny Kaey, Positive-Feedback Online

    Not since Billie Holiday has there been a vocalist who so completely transforms a song into her own. On It's Like This, eclectic folkie Rickie Lee Jones envelops standards, showtunes, '70s soul, and even slick jazz-rock, interpreting them with her familiar childlike, breathy shouts. In a very similar vein as 1991's Pop Pop, Jones pulls together a collection of diverse songs from throughout the 20th century and gives them a sparse, fragile spin, kind of like Diana Krall and Bjork sharing coffee at an all-night diner. Produced by Bruce Brody (who has also worked with Maria McKee and Bette Midler), this album is really a showcase for the dynamic vocalist - her voice pitching and yawing like a sloop far out at sea. Several notable artists scatter themselves unobtrusively throughout the album like Joe Jackson, Ben Folds, John Pizzarelli, and Taj Mahal; each lend a subtle bass line or harmony vocal, cautiously not stepping on any of Jones' delicate lines.
