Back in August of 1998 Ben Folds Five were one of the first guests
ever to appear on a brand new show called “Sessions at West 54th.”
Having just recently released their first album for Epic Records,
Whatever and Ever Amen, the band recorded one of their
best sets for the fledgling show. Of course, due to the requisite editing,
only a handful of the songs BF5 recorded ever made it to air—but
now, for the first time, you can see the band’s entire performance.

As an added bonus, this DVD features the complete and long-unavailable
Spare Reels footage: a 45-minute long short film, which contains,
as was written at the time, “live performances and weird scenes from
around the world and an intimate look at Ben Folds Five during the
studio sessions for their new album, The Unauthorized
Biography of Reinhold Messner.”
