We are always on the lookout for Fanning’s Fab Fifty rundowns to help fill out the master list so were delighted to come across this tape featuring 23 of the tracks to feature in the 1991 edition. Unfortunately Dave’s links were edited out so we can’t give the placings or the missing tracks. Eagle eyed readers might spot a typo – ‘Coast Is Clear’ is by Curve. Thanks to Caroline for sharing. Updating with full info thanks to Mossy. Spotify playlist.
