Until recently Leong Lau's records from the 1970s were well kept secrets of only the most avid Australian record freaks. Now collectors at last get 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, which is the reason the album is arguably one of the most innovative and exciting Australian funk/jazz albums. This reissue of the original 1977 LP is limited to 500 copies and comes in a high quality tip on gatefold, featuring original artwork and a brief biography on the enigma himself - Leong Lau.
