Mary J. Blige: Be Without You (Remixes) (White Label VLS) (2006)

More white label vinyl from Blige, this time featuring rare & unofficial remixes of her 2006 song Be Without You. The first is purportedly by Eminem & Dr. Dre's team and features Shady Records rapper Stat Quo, while the second mix makes use of a sample of the Art Of Noise's 1984 song Moments In Love. I don't know much about the former remix but it does sound official, whereas the latter one is obviously a white label mix. The reverse side features an album track from Blige's 2006 album The Breakthrough. More exclusive & rare stuff brought to you by "Persnickety"...
