The Fastbacks: All In Order (1994)





I'd argue that 1987's ...And His Orchestra is The Fastbacks (more HERE) finest moment. But a good case could be made for 1994's Answer the Phone Dummy, which which features some of Kurt Bloch's finest songs, like "Waste of Time". This 1994 single contains some excellent outtakes from that album (including the title track!)


A    All In Order 3:01
B1   Answer The Phone, Dummy 0:52
B2   Allison 1:17

  2. Fastbacks, always great...and I really like their version of Allison. Eve 6 did a great version of that too, by the way.

    1. I've never listened to much Eve 6, perhaps I shall check out their cover of "Allison".

  3. "Answer The Phone Dummy" hit me hard back in the 90's. And now, thanks to this series of posts, it looks like it'll be re-joining my shelf-o'-discs in the near future...

    1. It'll sit nicely with "And his Orchestra"
      Maybe 'Very Powerful Motor' will be next...
