Out-of-State Plates

Genre: Pop, Indie Rock; Producer (group): Virgin; Status: In Season

Instantly making a lot of bootleg compilations obsolete, this two-disc collection, Out-of-State Plates, of ”non-album tracks etc. 1996 — 2005” from these beloved cult popsmiths, Fountains of Wayne, culls rarities eternal (”I Know You Well,” a Beatlesque No. 1 hit in an alternate universe) and ephemeral (”Half a Woman,” more worthy of They Might Be Giants on an off night). Two new tunes and Howard Stern’s favorite cover version of ”…Baby One More Time” are included. Essential listening, especially for those who only know ”Stacy’s Mom.”
