Before Dark: Love Story (Advance Music) (RCA, 1998)

Advance promo copy of Before Dark's debut album with an alternate title Love Story. The album was originally set to be released in 1999 but after the failure of their first two singles, it was pushed back to the following year. The original album featured 3 tracks later omitted from the final track-listing Secrets, Sweetie Pie and Ooh Boy! The later two tracks went unreleased but Secrets later appeared as a b-side cut to the single Baby in 1999. Unfortunately they are nothing special and it is plain to see why they replaced them in the end.The song Monica and the productions by Kevin 'She'kspere' Briggs were definitely better.
