Release notes
-------------
Debra Killings on a lot of the backing vocals.
Tracks 6-8 sounds like TLC's Fanmail material, same era ofcourse :)

Tracks vary in quality (demo's), but most tracks sound finished, except for #7
and are in cdq or near cdq (some tracks you just need to turn up louder).

Also, a Monica Payne (Terri & Monica/The Gyrlz) rarity on here, which is
unreleased. Arrangement from her track sounds like TLC's "Unpretty".
