Little Rock (a.k.a. Drawers and 21) is the sixth track on Eric Leeds' first album Times Squared, and, a few months after the album's release, Little Rock was available as the album's second promotional release in the USA.

Although production for the track is officially credited to Eric Leeds, the track was recorded with Prince before a solo project by Eric Leeds was suggested, and Prince acted as the producer in such sessions, so production credit is given to both artists in this entry.

Initial tracking took place on 29 May, 1985 as Drawers at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (the day after Polka-Dot Tiger, on the same day as Killin' At The Soda Shop, Married Man and Zebra With The Blonde Hair, the day before For Love).

In August, 1989, Prince asked Eric Leeds to compile tracks from the vault for a third Madhouse album. This track was one of ten selected, and in keeping with previous Madhouse releases tracks were given tentative numerical titles of 17 to 26 (the album would be titled 26) - this track was given the title of 21 as the fifth track on the album at the time.

When Prince suggested the album should be released as a solo album by Eric Leeds, Leeds came up with titles for each track, in Spring 1990; this track became known as Little Rock and the album became known as Times Squared.
