“Tell me what I did,” Ben Folds implores, his heart pulsating blood atop his piano. It’s a familiar feeling, only Folds tells it from the perspective of a little kid – at least that’s what it sounds like on “Tell Me What I Did”, just one more punchy new track off the piano man’s three-disc career retrospective, The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective, due out October 11th via Legacy Recordings. We’ve heard two of the three new tunes off the effort – you remember “House”, right? – and so far our renewed love for the former trio has not expired. Not one bit.
