After subsisting on a steady trickle of coveted bootlegs and costly import singles, Fountains of Wayne's faithful fans will be treated to a geyser of the band's rare material.
Out-of-State Plates, a two-CD set due June 28 on Virgin Records, compiles 26 recordings that have not appeared on albums, including California Sex Lawyer and I Want an Alien for Christmas. The group covers the Burt Bacharach/Hal David tune Trains and Boats and Planes, as well as songs by ELO, Gene Pitney, Jackson Browne and Aztec Camera.
There's also a mono bootleg of the band interpreting Britney Spears' ... Baby One More Time, recorded in 1999 but never released. It gained a foothold after Howard Stern obtained a copy and broadcast it repeatedly, sparking nationwide airplay of unauthorized copies. FoW songwriters Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger, best known for hit single Stacy's Mom, also submit two new tunes for the package, The Girl I Can't Forget and Maureen.
