Riki Brooks: Freak Zone (NDN Music Records, 199x)

First posted by my buddy Stuart back in May, we stumbled across this smooth R&B/modern soul rarity on Amazon. Possibly from Miami, FL, there's no information about the artist anywhere but she formally released a freestyle track in 1988 titled I Need Love. Sadly the above release - which spawned at least one single - has since been popularized by the plethora of European You Tubers and Bloggers and now comes with a hefty price tag to boot. Props to Stuart for snagging it when it was under $239...
