Lonzo & The World Class Wreckin' Kru - Fast Lane 1988

Techno-Kut TK-1001

The full title is "Turn Off The Lights in the Fast Lane" but only "Fast Lane" is printed on the label. This release is a bit odd because it seems to be a re-hash of some kind. In 1985 The World Class Wreckin' Cru released an album called 'World Class' featuring a track called 'Lovers'. Three years later Lonzo & The World Class Wreckin' Kru (with a 'K' this time) release this album with the excellent 'Lovers (Revised)' featuring the dulcet tones of Mona Lisa Young which has a much better production sound than the original version. Worth pointing out that this is soul rather than rap. 'Turn Off The Lights' is also a superb soulful piece of music and therefore, it's definitely an album worth hearing.

Can't decide whether the NWA guys (Dr. Dre and Yella, I think?) are in the line up or not but the dude at the bottom in the blue/green suit looks like he should be in Outkast?
