The recording for this show comes from one of my all time favorite live performers and the only reason it took this long to get a show posted was the relatively small number of recordings available. Every once in a while I will spot a decent Ben Folds recording on the inter-webs, but this one from a 2008 tour stop in San Francisco was a cut above the rest.

There is a clear reason why Ben Folds’ live reputation has achieved such a legendary status. First and foremost the man is a natural performer and really knows how to work a crowd. Another reason in my mind is what he describes during this recording as his set list strategy. Basically this means playing his new songs at the beginning of the set and then finishing with classic fan favorites. To me this formula is a perfect 1-2 punch that I believe all artists should use for optimal crowd enjoyment. I tried to follow Ben’s lead for the song selection so I hope you’ll agree with my assessment.
