THE BARGAIN BUY: Foo Fighters; Foo Fighters

Hard to believe but it is getting close to 25 years since the release of the first, self-titled Foo Fighters album, essentially a solo album because former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl recorded it himself playing just about every instrument.

It remains a classic pop-rock album -- some felt it not grunge enough but that door was closing after Kurt Cobain's death a year previous -- and was a springboard for Grohl's reinvention as a frontman singer-guitarist.

The Colour and the Shape of two years later consolidated the idea of Foo Fighters as a band with Nate Mendel and (sometimes) Pat Smear in the touring unit.

We mention these two albums now because they are part of the terrific two-for-$20 deal on Foo Fighters albums at JB Hi-Fi stores here.

Also in the deal are There is Nothing Left to Lose, One By One, In Your Honour, Skin and Bones, Echoes Silence Patience and Grace, and a Greatest Hits compilation.

A real Bargain Buy.
