E'layne: Elite Street (EP) (Self-Released, 199x)

Another obscure pressing from the 90s that I know little about. The disc and artwork were made in Canada but I believe the artist hails from Ohio as per the phone number given inside. Featured are two tracks smooth R&B and one 90s house track with soulful, jazzy vocals. I don't know much about the artist but I believe she is now a professor at Ohio State University. Featuring backing vocals from Conya Doss on track 2.

Kelli Sae: S/T (OGW Entertainment, 1998)

First release from former Count Basic and Defunkt vocalist Kelli Sae (Smith) who possesses a multi-octive vocal range. Mainly a mixture of hip hop soul along the lines of classic 90s Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans with a few smooth jazz and rock tracks mixed in to showcase her diversity. Originally released in 1998, it has since been re-issued digitally.
