    Athens Of The North
    • Hard Drivers – Since I Was a Little Girl
    • Hard Drivers – Straight Talk
    • 1. Since I Was a Little Girl
    • 2. Straight Talk

    This Disco Funk Banger was discovered reasonably late in the game on the Deepfunk scene,. Vivian Lee's big powerful vocal over the pushy backing is what its all about, straight to the point short and sweet dance floor killer!
