Nyna Chante: Southwest Regional A&R Compilation Sept. '91 (Promo Cassette) (1991)

Over the years a guy on eBay has been selling a lot of rare promo cassettes, many unreleased demos from known and unknown artists alike. His impressive collection incorporates many genres of music, including much R&B, but sadly because of the high demand for it almost anything of interest has snapped up over the years. From time to time, I have gone through the remaining dregs he had up for Buy It Now and found a few gems of my own such as JPD Jams and San Fransisco Originals but unfortunately even these appear somewhat rare these days. The above tape, a compilation submitted to Teresa LaBarbera-Whites (a-then talent scout for Columbia records), is literally the last thing of interest that I managed to find whilst wading through all the crap that has been left behind. Disregarding the first four tracks of alt rock garbage, the final two tracks are 90s New Jack Swing/R&B from an unknown female artist and appear to exist nowhere else but here.
