Faith No More: King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime 12" (new)

Rhino Records


2016 Deluxe Edition features New Remasters of the Original Album Plus Bonus Disc of Rarities & B-sides!

Following their Grammy nominated album Angel Dust, Faith No More returned in 1995 withKing For A Day...Fool For A Lifetime. Recorded at Bearsville Studios near Woodstock, NY, it was the band's first without longtime guitarist Jim Martin, whose departure had an influence on the direction of the album. In the new liner notes, keyboardist Roddy Bottum writes: "As a result, we wrote and recorded some of our most radical, out there songs like 'Cuckoo For Caca' and 'Ugly In The Morning,' some of our mellowest like 'Take This Bottle,' 'Caralho Voador' and then some or our most high-drama, like 'Just A Man.'" Among the bonus tracks on this new remastered deluxe edition are the b-sides "Spanish Eyes" and "Absolute Zero," as well as the band's cover of the Bee Gee's "I Started A Joke," which was originally released as a b-side in 1995, and then as a single in 1998.
