Good Listening: Ben Folds – Live in Berlin – 6-4-05

Greetings all,

I've had a monstrous cocktail of the flu, bronchitis, and my usual friend asthma hanging out since this past Tuesday. During this unexpectedly fun week of hotel illness, I cracked the highest fever I've ever had - 104.5.

I'm technically out of the woods now, but still lacking lots on the energy side of things. I felt bad though, and wanted to drop by to share some rock and roll that's been sitting in the holding tank for a while now.

Ben Folds is out on the road for a fresh set of tour dates supporting Way To Normal, including an Ohio date in Columbus on February 21st.

I like this particular show, because the setlist is really close to what I saw when I saw Ben in Ann Arbor, MI a couple of years ago. Stuff from the EPs, the Dre cover.....all of the good stuff.

The sound is MINT.

All sorts of good Ann Arbor memories come flooding through when I listen to this show....memories including time spent going through the endless stacks of musical treasure at Encore Recordings! If you ever find yourself in Ann Arbor, make some time for Encore.

Check that, make a lot of time. You'll be glad that you did.
