Freckles: Daddy Wasn't There (EP) (Filthy Rich Records, 1997)

Another straight up amazing find from my good pal Stuaaart, the rare EP from smooth-voiced Chi-Town songstress Tanya White AKA Freckles. She is mostly known for her song Dance With Me which made some minor waves on the music scene in 2002 but her debut CD Does It Really Matter sadly ended up on the cutting room floor despite being as good, if not better, than similar stuff released at the time. She was signed to an independent label which had distribution rights through Universal (Beyond subdivision) but the above set was recorded earlier on in her career and probably soon after fellow Chi-Town musician R.Kelly encouraged her to sing instead of MC. Also recorded before she came out as a lesbian, it includes a steamy duet with an unknown male artist.
