Omar: There’s Nothing Like This (RCA, 1994, 12″)
’90s “alternative” R&B.
Look…I just wasn’t f—ing with much R&B in the ’90s unless it was some obviously hip-hop influenced act like Mary J. or SWV. As such, I pretty much missed the entire Omar era and I deserve a late pass for sleeping on this laid back goodness. I have this as a B-side on Omar’s 1994 single, “Saturday” but I only realized later that the song is actually from 1990 (which means that the next move is to the cop the actual, original 12″ with the remixes).
