The Braxtons: Good Life (Promo CDS) (Arista, 1990)

This was Toni and Tamar's first ever recording with their three sisters in 1990. It wasn't a hit but Toni caught the attention of  L.A. Reid and Babyface and later went on to sign to their newly-formed label LaFace Records as a solo artist. The Braxtons (with Tamar) regrouped as a threesome in 1996 and inked a deal with Atlantic Records, releasing their one and only studio album to date So Many Ways. Neither this song or its b-side Family appeared on the album, however an acapella mix of the title track later appeared on The Essential Toni Braxton in 2007... 

After posting the 12" vinyl some years back, I am finally able to post the 2-trk promo CD. Special thanks to Martin from Peru for this rarity.

Does not include the b-side.
