Night Games: The Complete Recordings: 4CD Clamshell Boxset


  • Fast Buck were a popular classic rock band who made just one album – a self-titled effort for Jet Records in 1976. Amazingly, despite selling 40,000 copies at the time, the LP has never been reissued on CD, until now, and includes the LP’s sole single 'Sometime Man’! The band revolved around the talents of guitarist and songwriter Ed Hamilton, who kept the band going long after they had parted company with Jet and founded their own recording studio.
  • In due course, Ed developed his song-writing skills, penning 'Night Games’, which was duly picked up by Graham Bonnet to become a massive Top 10 UK hit in 1981. Fast Buck’s original rendition is included on this definitive 4-CD compendium, which boasts a raft of previously unissued tracks, alongside their one-off single backing ex-Rockpile star Billy Bremner, 'Endless Sleep’ b/w 'Mona-Lott’.
  • Bonnet also recorded Fast Buck’s song 'I’m A Lover’, penned by the band’s guitarist Andy Locke and bassist Dave Kerr-Clemenson (again, the original Fast Buck rendition appears here). Another of Ed’s songs, 'Lovin’ On Borrowed Time’, was featured in the soundtrack to the Sylvester Stallone movie Cobra, as performed by Gladys Knight & Bill Medley. Two very different performances of this song can be heard on this 4-CD box set.
  • Disc 4 is devoted to live recordings by Fast Buck, a reflection of their reputation as a must-see band for those “in the know”, either headlining smaller venues or supporting The Pretty Things, Kevin Ayers, Widowmaker, Stray and ultimately ELO. Ed Hamilton and the rest of the band also worked closely with Status Quo’s Bob Young (Fast Buck sang harmony backing vocals on Bob’s In Quo Country album), Mick Moody and a host of other names who were active on the mid-80s rock scene.
