A rather misleading title, as this isn't really a mixtape at all but an EP containing three songs never previously released, two remixes from previous albums and "This Christmas" with Marcus Cole. Many will be intrigued to hear the recasting of her classic hit "You Don't Know" while the unreleased songs, like the fantastic "Sing To The Lord" are well worth a listen. Even the Christmas song, a brilliant cover of Donny Hathaway's much loved oldie "This Christmas" works well. While we are waiting for Kiki's next full length album this release is well worth investigating.
