Nicole Steel: Songs [EP] (199x)

Back to Chicago for some more exclusive R&B featuring Nicole Steel and 90s artist Tina Moore. Steel as far as I know is unknown but did have 1 track feature on an independent Chi-Town comp from 1999. Her later work is more in line with mid 90s contemporary R&B but this early demo features 2 tracks 90s soul with a 70s flavor...not surprising track 1 is a cover of an original song by The Emotions. The third and final track "Color Me Blue" is sung by Tina Moore and the original version featured on her debut eponymous album which was released via Scotti Bros. Records in 1995. I don't know if it was originally intended for Steel but the version here is drastically different from the one on the album - which sounded like something Whitney might've recorded back in the day - and has different production and vocals.
