Lisa Stanfield: The Real Thing (Brazilian Promo CDM) (BMG Brasil, 1997)

Another rarity from Stansfield issued exclusively to the Brazilian market in 1997. A lot of stunning remixes here by K-Klass, Mark Picchiotti and The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in particular were responsible for the bootleg mix of her 1989 song with Coldcut "People Hold On" which scored a number one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs in 1996. After the more contemporary R&B sound of her 1991 and 1993 albums, this is a well-welcomed return to the club music that first propelled her to stardom in the late 80s.
