As a Radish fan, it shouldn't
be too much of a surprise that I like Ben Kweller's solo stuff. However, it did
take a while for me to get round to listening to solo B.K material. I had heard
‘Sha Sha’ in a record shop, and it didn’t instantly grab me because it
sounded different to the Radish stuff I owned.
Fortunately some good
friends of mine made sure I heard the first album. After a few listens I was
hooked! When the second album came out it took me even longer to really get
into, but after some repeated listens I was then convinced I should find out
what else Ben had released.
After searching the
Internet for a good B.K/Radish discography I realised that there was no one site
that seemed to have every B.K release. I found many contradictions and oddities
between sites, so I decided to create my own.
Many thanks to Ben Kweller himself, and the other people on his forum who have spared their time and knowledge to help me!
Please note any songs that were originally Radish compositions, are highlighted in blue.
