Legal Tender: A Dream/Nobody (CDM) (Lo Key Records, 199x)

A further obscure quartet from the 90s who never went beyond this one release. There is no title on the front but the main tracks are A Dream (a DeBarge cover from 1983) and the funky, smooth original Nobody which may have been released along with it as a double-A side (as from the quite old music video that can be found on You Tube.) From Queens, NY, their harmonies are very similar to Xscape's and the lead singer's voice bears more than a passing resemblance to their own lead singer LaTocha Scott's. No date of release but a review of the former song in Billboard Magazine possibly puts it at around February, 1997. Unfortunately - as with a lot of these really obscure 90s groups - they seemed to be the only R&B act on their mostly all-rap label.
