Ben Folds Five - 1999-11-18 - Stockholm

Ben Folds Five
Stockholm, Sweden
Soundboard - Excellent Quality
mp3 @ 160 kbps

To wrap up my Featured Artist Tribute to Ben Folds, here are a couple of shows from his original Band, the Ben Folds Five, which was together from around 1995-2000. Now, many of his fans still think that he made his best music as part of this group, and they are superb, but you can be the judge. First up, is an excellent soundboard recording from 1999, although a somewhat short set (undoubtedly a partial show) from Stockholm, Sweden. Features a nice, but all too short, mix of songs from all three of their albums.

01 – Army
02 – Don't Change Your Plans
03 – Your Redneck Past
04 – Mess
05 – Brick
06 – Philosophy
07 – Fair
08 – One Angry Dwarf And 200 Solemn Faces
09 – Sledge on Power Animals and Oranges
10 – Underground
11 – Song For The Dumped

I love Ben Folds Five and their last show in Chapel Hill was amazing. Ben Fold's a capella album is pretty good too.

There is a new artist that sounds very much like Ben Folds Five. I think Lamar Holley may fill your Ben Folds needs :)

Thanks for posting this. I've been meaning to give Ben Folds Five a listen to, and this appears to be just the sampling I've been looking for.
