Ben wants to release it, but it's been on the backburner for the year.


Also this is the video rip: Click! (http://wokeupwaytoolate.com/filedump/AudioRips/Front%20to%20Back/MySpace.com%20-%20Front%20to%20Back%20%20Ben%20Folds%20Five%20Reunion!%20Live,%20Sept%2018th..flv)

It's shame it still hasn’t been officially released. I'll be first in line for one when/if it is. It'd be great if we could have it as blu-ray too. It was recorded in Hi-Def I believe.

So news on the DVD. They won't be releasing a DVD but they have the footage and Ben says they will probably release it with the reinhold repackage. Encore included!

Yea he finally answered my question today after days of asking :P  He said that they have their practice session/pre-show stuff, Reinhold, as well as the encore set all on tape and the reason they never released it was due to cost.  Although we would have loved it, Ben said it would've lost money essentially.  But yea, he said when Reinhold is re-issued, he's gonna try to package the reunion show in somehow.  I'm crossing my fingers that it'll be soon.

I'm not for cash grabs, and I'm pretty sure that a remastered TUBORM will sound horrible unless Ben supervises it himself (if only because there's nothing wrong with the original disk), but I would buy the album again to get a DVD with the whole concert and pre-show stuff.

I think we all would in a heartbeat.  Hopefully after the Lonely Avenue tour he'll start working on this as well as re-releasing everything on vinyl.

Haha I bet Ben hasn't played Regrets a single time during his solo career.

It usually is cited as the weakest song on the album (although I really like the synth and the build-up to the crazy "ahhhs" at the end.  Also, it doesn't work as well out of context, since it forms something of a suite with "Hospital Song" and "Army", with references to both in the lyrics and similar chords.

God, I really love this album.  It was my favorite of all time at one point, and it's still probably top 5.   It's like Exile on Main Street and Abbey Road in that some of the best moments are things like "Hospital Song" and "Regrets" that weren't the big singles and maybe couldn't have been but are still so great and important to the album as a whole.

I wonder if Ben knows what a piece of genius Messner is. It's just incredible. The band is amazing, the songs and the mood and all the crazy maj 7th chords and odd melodies.
Sighhh.
