why we love this
This all round feel-good album showcases Australian Leong Lau at his peak.
about the record
Until recently Leong Lau’s records of the 1970s were well kept secrets of only the most avid Australian record collectors. Left Ear Records, along with the help of Leong, are proud to give collectors a chance to add ‘That Rongeng Sound’ to their collection. Leong’s unique Malay-jazz-meets-Aus-funk identity takes listeners on a journey through funky beats and flowing melodies and is the reason the album is arguably one of the most innovative and exciting Australian albums originally released in 1977.
