Fastway is the first album by the band, Fastway.

Founding member Pete Way (ex bass guitar player with UFO) did not actually play on the album. By the time the recording sessions began he had already left the band.[2] He soon formed another band, Waysted.

The bass guitar parts on the album were actually played by the session bass guitarist, Mickey Feat[citation needed] (who is uncredited on the album).

The album has been reissued as a two-fer with the second Fastway album, All Fired Up; however, that edition omits the "Far Far From Home" bonus track featured on the standalone CD release of the first album.

UK-based record label Rock Candy Records has since reissued the album was additional liner notes and bonus tracks, including B-Sides and BBC sessions.
