MARY J BLIGE: REMINISCE (1992)

Arguably the track that kick-started the whole 'hip-hop soul' movement, 'Reminisce' is revered by many MJB fans as her defining track. Overflowing with heartfelt powerhouse vocals, and with samples from Pete Rock & CL Smooth's 'T.R.O.Y' weaved into the beat, this is pure goosebumps business with a very apt title.
Sadly, the track on this video version isn't the one that appears on 'What's The 411' and is inferior as a result. But no matter. The flava's still there. Another pre gem from the golden years.
