Updated versions of all eight cuts from the British metal group's 1989 'On Target' album, each featuring Eddie Clark having redone his original guitar work, as he was unhappy with the original sound & got the rights to the album back in 1998. Lea Hart, who's first album with the band was 'On Target', has helped out Clark here on remaking five Fastway classics (added as bonus tracks): 'Say What You Will', 'Trick Or Treat', 'Station', 'Make My Day' & 'Easy Livin''. 13 tracks total. 1998 Receiver Records release.
Wow! What a bad album!

"Like the previous reviewer said, this is just not fastway. However, that's not the worst of it. This is simply a terrible collection of songs. This album sounds like it could have been the sound track to a cheesy 80s high school teen flick - tons of keyboards, almost drum machine-sounding drums with tons of bad echo effects and just plain bad vocals. The focals are thin and full of sing-song pop harmonies. I'm sorry Fast Eddie, but this album has absolutely no redeeming value...NONE! I just want to make sure I have made it clear that this album is horrible on it's own. It does not need to be compared to other Fastway albums to be considered this bad."
Fastway without David King?

"Let's see here.. hmmm.. Fastway without David King, really? No disrespect to Eddie Clark but without the outragous range of David King,, the band is not the same. As a bad Fastway is sooo overlooked for true '80s metal band. Eclipse by the "Hollywood Metal Band Scene" (i.e. Motley Crue, Ratt, Cinderella, etc) the bands true "energy" was never really appriciated. What made Fastway a great band was not complex guitar riffs that Eddie thinks are so important, but just the way they played as a "group". Infact, none of Fastways music was really complex at all, just good 'ol rock-n-roll basics, what made it special was the energy of "the group". If you want the real Fastway exsperiance, stick with the first album to start, then Trick or Treat I imagin, or anything with David King as lead singer of Fastway. This album just isnt Fastway,,."
