The 11 Best Travis B-Sides From The Invisible Band


In the first chunk of Travis B-Sides, Bad Feelings,"the songs were actually stronger than their album counterparts. It showed the band was progressing, their music writing capabilities were evolving. On The Woman Who, they left it all on the floor. Since most of the strong tracks found themselves on the parent album, there was very little leftover for those $10 CD singles. The B-Sides were only so-so, with a couple of bright spots. But as in life, the third time is the charm. The Highly Visible Band (the 3rd B-side Album) prospered from a sorta EP/exclusive CD single called Coming Around. Partnered with 4 extra tracks, it might be the strongest non-album release of the band's career.

Here are the 11 Best Travis B-Sides From The Invisible Band era:

The Highly Visible Band

1. Central Station
2. Rock 'N' Salad Roll
3. The Weight (The Band)
4. The Connection
5. Just The Faces Change
6. You're A Big Girl Now (Bob Dylan)
7. Beautiful
8. Killer Queen (Queen)
9. All The Young Dudes (Mott The Hoople)
10. Ancient Train
11. A Little Bit Of Soul
