Gabrielle: If You Really Cared (UK CDS 1 & 2) (Go! Beat, 1996)

This was UK Soul singer Garbrielle's third single from her eponymous sophomore album. It was issued as a double CD set, the first of which features the David Morales Def Club Mix of her previous hit Give Me A Little More Time (which was previously only available to the US market), and the original and unreleased version of her debut 1993 hit Dreams.
The Def version of Give Me A Little More Time in particular features re-sung vocals and markedly different production to the original, transforming it into a great 90s house track. The second disc features three unique remixes of non-single Baby I've Changed, including jazzy hip hop and ambient drum and bass versions. These mixes were previously only available on 12" vinyl and were issued to the US market only.
