Album of the Day
King For A Day (Deluxe Edition)
Following the Grammy-nominated ANGEL DUST, Faith No More returned in 1995 with KING FOR A DAY...FOOL FOR A LIFETIME. Recorded at Bearsville Studios near Woodstock, New York, it was the first album following the departure of longtime guitarist Jim Martin, and the addition of replacement axeman Trey Spruance and producer Andy Wallace resulted in one of the group's most stylistically diverse collections. "We wrote and recorded some of our most radical, out there songs,” recalls keyboardist Roddy Bottum, “like 'Cuckoo For Caca' and 'Ugly In The Morning,' some of our mellowest like 'Take This Bottle,' 'Caralho Voador' and then some of our most high-drama, like 'Just A Man.'" The new Deluxe Edition of KING FOR A DAY...FOOL FOR A LIFETIME adds a second disc filled with related rarities including B-sides "Spanish Eyes" and "Absolute Zero," as well as the band's cover of the Bee Gee's "I Started A Joke."
