Description by OLDIES.com:

Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam (Mike Hughes and "Spanador") were one of the strongest dance/pop-funk/R&B acts of the mid-1980s -- their strength originated from an association with Full Force, whose writing and production talents would later be utilized by the Backstreet Boys, Samantha Fox, Cheryl Pepsii Riley, Selena and others. "Spanish Fly" hit #7 on the Billboard 200 chart (going platinum), and yielded the singles "Lost In Emotion" (which hit #1 on numerous Billboard charts), "Head To Toe" (#1 on the Billboard 100 chart and others) and "Someone To Love For Me." The album "Straight To The Sky" hit #18 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums' chart in 1989, and yielded the hit "Little Jackie Wants To Be A Star." This reissue contains nine bonus tracks, all previously available as 12" singles.

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: SPANISH FLY (1987)/STRAIGHT TO THE SKY (1989).
Arrangers: Full Force; Lisa Lisa.
This Collectables reissue features Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam's hit record Spanish Fly, which propelled them into the top of the mainstream and dance charts in the mid-'80s on the backs of two hit singles: "Head to Toe" and the effervescent sass-pop hit "Lost in Emotion." It also features the less successful follow-up release "Straight to the Sky" and a generous plethora of remixes for both full-lengths. While there's a reasonable amount of forgettable filler found within these two releases, the hits have unquestionably stood the test of time and the remixes are the true stars here, foreshadowing early elements of Chicago house and more melodic Detroit techno (? la Inner City) throughout. It's a purchase only the die-hard dedicated fan would enjoy with repeated listens, but those looking to fill the gaps in their collections would be well served by checking this reasonably priced release out. ~ Rob Theakston
