Lisa Stansfield: Make It Right (Promo CDM) (Giant Records, 1994)


Make It Right was taken from the soundtrack to Beverly Hills 90210: The College Years and was released in the US in 1994. This CD promo has additional remixes by Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez (Masters At Work) that weren't on the commercial CD single. These remixes are very close to the original and even feature the song's original bridge, rather than the alternative spoken word b-section from Stansfield that appeared in the other mixes, particularly those by R. Kelly.

Gabrielle: Give Me A Little More Time (UK CDM) (Go! Beat, 1996)

This was Gabrielle's lead single from her eponymous sophomore album and was released in 1996. It marked a difference from the previous polished pop sound of her debut album  (particularly Dreams) and spent ten weeks inside the UK top ten. On this disc are mixes by New York hip hop producer Buckwild and Indian composer Talvin Singh. Buckwild's mix features additional backing vocals and a guest rap from Brooklyn rapper O.C; the Talvin Singh mix is mainly instrumental. There's also an additional mix of the sophomore album track So Glad.
