Ben Folds, anyone?

Sometime in early 2004. iTunes has his Sunny 16 and Speed Graphic EP's for $3.99 and $4.99. Nine songs. Nine good songs. If you like BF5 you'll certainly like them because they're in the band setting and have the old pep to them.

Personally, my favorite is his solo live performances. Ben Folds Live was just about as perfects as a CD can get.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Thanks for the info...

And I agree, I love Ben Folds Live, especially the newer version of Emaline.

iTunes is absolutely the best MP3 library system and purchasing system there is. Period. Downloading is quick, easy, and they place it in your library and "Purchased Music" folder so you can find it. Also, the streaming radio stations are heaven. No buffering whatsoever. Free program too.

I just bought an an iPod for my wife and was surprised how great the iTunes program was.

Yeah... I've been a long time fan of ITunes (I'm almost jealous PC users get to use it now).  

The purchase was fast as shit... once you're signed up, they have your card number, you just click click and it zooms into your library... all five songs took about a minute to fully download, but once song one is done (about 15 secs on dsl) you can start listening.

The sound quality is really good too.  They're making it way too easy for me to spend my money.  I'm usually pretty cheap.

I've got both Speed Graphic and Sunny 16. They're good, but the production on them is really thin. Just in the sense that there's not a lot of polish to it. It's really raw. Ben and some guys on instruments.

I'm a little more of a fan of his more fully produced stuff (Rockin the Suburbs was phenomenal).

To me, Ben Folds is like sex. When it's good, it's mindblowingly good, and when it's bad, it's still pretty damn great.

cool...I am a itunes and quicktime whore already, amazing the hours of time you can waste on it, when supposly working.  So when they released it for PC's I quick integrated my system at home over.  Funny thing is, I had an itunes skin on my windowmedia player..

I have never tried buying anything from them tho, so the info is greatly apprieciated.

I hear ya Raikus, I love the streams they have on there, listen to them all the time while working.
