867-5309/Jenny is a budget-line disc featuring ten tracks by the '80s new wave band Tommy Tutone. Originally recorded for Columbia Records, these catchy tunes include the singles "Baby It's Alright," "Girl in the Back Seat," "Bernadiah," and their biggest chart-topper from 1981, "867-5309/Jenny." The absence of "Angel Say No," the group's only other chart entry, mars this already skimpy compilation, making it ultimately unsatisfactory. If you're only looking for the title hit, it's available on numerous "Best of the '80s" collections, which are the suggested purchase route for the budget-minded casual fan.
