Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Ben Folds Five's eponymous 1995 debut is full of Tin Pan Alley showmanship, with a touch of Something/Anything? era Todd Rundgren meets Look Sharp! Era Joe Jackson and an alternative rock sensibility. Witty, offbeat, piano-based songs helped Ben Folds Five deliver five singles and receive universal praise. The record failed to chart, but caused an intense bidding war among the majors eventually won by Sony Music.
