I fear we are getting off topic. Also, I can't remember exactly but I know I had to send some private messages to sort it out.

HOORAY, Prince Charming with Sledge at the helm!!! Labeled as a BF track, and not BFF, but who cares, its awesome! Can't wait to hear a better version of Amelia Bright than the clip Amazon has when the CDs get here.....

Might be my memory Andy, but I'm pretty sure there were other chunky disputes back in the day...one of the Benvivor rounds springs to mind...!

Anyway, dragging back on topic, this has all kind of snuck up on me.  I've ordered the 3-CD set from the OS, so waiting for that to arrive and then will delve into the vault (and no doubt add my 20 contribution to Ben's pension :P).  Looking forward particularly to the Jesusland version, and remember standing with you watching that one Andy!

So, anyway, I'm going to go back to the lurker depths I just dredged myself up from, but thought I'd just say hi.

J...still watching you

Smoke is listed in iTunes as a ben folds track, not BFF which is interesting.  Definitely BFF.

Isn't the Smoke demo pre-BFF?

I wish the songs were arranged in some means besides alphabetically. Do them chronologically or clumping demos, b-sides, and live songs.

Just a thought, but maybe they're listed alphabetically so that if you're buying by the track, you only need to find the right place in the alphabet.

Sounds about right. I've just opened a thread for suggestions on alternative track orderings. Nerds, don't let me down!

Oh nice, you can only download once so if your connection screws up in the middle of it you're f*cked.


No, I was able to use the link in my email & redownload the tracks that were incomplete.

Nope, it let me re-download most of them, but the three it was in the middle of it won't allow me. So now I'm missing All Shook Up, Cologne Piano Orchestra (no biggie, it's on the Seeds album) and Evaporated 1992 demo.

Have tried e-mail support as interestingly it hasn't cropped up in any of the usual dodgy places yet...

Still, a huge WTF? What, are they worried if I download them more than once I might have more than one copy? They're to be applauded for making them DRM free but to not at least a download time window or something... I mean not even porn sites do the 'one download is all you get' approach. Not that I'd know.

As someone who hasn't yet bought the Retrospective album or the songs in the vault (don't worry, I'll buy them soon), I'm curious to know what the In Love demo is like. Is it just Ben without Shatner? I've never been a huge fan of Shatner's talking, but I do like the song quite a lot besides that.

Yep! Shatner-less. Otherwise I think it's pretty much the same.
