If I Had $10.25: Barenaked Ladies Compilation Due This Month

with 2 comments

 

Rhino has set a September 27 release date for Hits from Yesterday & The Day Before, a new compilation from the Barenaked Ladies.

It’s probably been more than one week since you noticed, but one of Canada’s best-loved bands of the past 25 years – and certainly one of the most misleadingly-named groups in any country – are still going strong, even with the departure of founding member/co-lead singer Steven Page in 2009. Their late ’90s/early ’00s output were radio staples – from the pure pop pleasure of tracks like “Shoe Box” and “It’s All Been Done” to tracks like “Pinch Me” and “Another Postcard,” which packed as many jokes in the lyrics as there were hooks in the tunes. (The band has also endeared itself to Second Disc HQ by writing a song called “Box Set” about – what else? – their fictitious career-spanning box set.)

And it looks like this compilation, which compiles tracks spanning from the band’s major-label debut Gordon in 1992 to last year’s independently-released All in Good Time and includes one new-to-CD bonus track (the band’s irresistibly catchy theme song to the hit sitcom The Big Bang Theory).

In the meantime, have a look at the track list for this new compilation after the jump.

  1. I think this is a stronger set than their first compilation, but these guys really need a 2-disc set. And why do they keep omitting Hello City from their compilations?

  2. I remember reading a couple months back that there was going to be a 2 CD edition of this comp available separately, and that it would contain rarities.

    No word on that any more?
