LITTLE LENNY - Space Car (1986)

Gresham, DGX441   
Producers: Julian Laxton & Les Goode   
Engineer: Les Goode       
Mixed at Syntrax by Adrian Strydom


The underrated Little Lenny put out some quality sounds, with fresh, funky melodies and new synth sounds. The title track is solid gold weighing in at 7min. B sides 'Taxi Dube Station' and 'Stockies Draai' both take inspiration from the synth bassline of Imagination's 'Music And Lights' and give it a Mzansi makeover.
