Xscape: The Arms Of The One Who Loves You (UK CDS 1 & 2) (So So Def, 1998)

Xscape's lead single from their third and final album was issued as a 2 CD set in Britain, complete with remixes by Jermaine Dupri and Frankie Knuckles that were previously only available on 12" vinyl in the US. Durpi's 'Mood Mix' in particular employs re-sung vocals and alternative production. There's also the Traces Of My Lipstick album track Am I Dreamin' (featuring Keith Sweat and Ol' Skool) and on CD 2 there's a further club mix credited to an unknown remixer.
