A Little Spice (originally titled "Loose End") is the debut album released by the English R&B band Loose Ends. The original UK version was released in 1984 (some early pressings list "1983" [1]).


The following year, an alternate version of the album, featuring "Hangin' on a String (Contemplating)" in place of "Feels So Right Now" and a re-ordered overall track listing was released for the U.S. market. This album reached number five on the U.S. R&B chart in 1985, while the single, "Hangin' on a String", became a number one hit on both the U.S. Dance and US R&B charts. It was also a moderate hit on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Also, it is featured in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto IV's fictional Soul/R&B radio station The Vibe 98.8. Between the years 1991-2009 the album sold an additional 126,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen Soundscan 7 years after its initial release. The album remains uncertified with overall sells unknown.
