Ben Craven – The Single Edits (Desert Comb Music, 2018)

This CD of remixed singles by excellent Australian multi-instrumentalist and composer Ben Craven was originally released in digital format last year. The CD edition is beautifully designed and includes lyrics.

The material from Craven’s The Single Edits comes from two superb progressive rock albums Last Chance to Hear (2016) and Great & Terrible Potions (2011). The songs and instrumentals have been cut down to radio single length, 2-5 minutes long. It’s a great way to become acquainted with Craven’s music and ideal for radio airplay as well. The album includes a couple of straight pop ballads that were not featured in the previous albums.
