Spanish Fly/Straight to the Sky

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
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."
