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 (à 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.
