Ben Folds' solo debut, finally back on vinyl! To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Rockin' The Suburbs, Epic has pressed up the album on limited edition double 180 gram vinyl (the first and only vinyl reissue since its original release). Originally released in 2001, Rockin' The Suburbs found Ben Folds without the "Five" for the first time. The then-former frontman/pianist for Ben Folds Five wrote, composed and played nearly all the instruments on the album, an impressive feat by any means, and the results speak for themselves. Folds would go on to record several more solo albums before reuniting with the band in 2011. Includes the tracks "Still Fighting It," "Rockin' The Suburbs," "The Luckiest," and more. It also includes the bonus track "Hiro's Song" that is only on Japanese CD and US vinyl pressings. 13 tracks in all.
