Yes. I know that most of the songs have been used for other projects. But as far as i know, there's a non official compilation out there with the youtube leaked songs cleaned to improve their sound.

The Epiphany compilation is however mainly notable for including six tracks from what was originally intended to be Khan's tenth solo album, Dare You To Love Me, recorded between the years 1993 and 1995. Titles from the postponed and eventually cancelled album featured on the Epiphany compilation include "Love Me Still" (co-written by Bruce Hornsby, first released on the soundtrack to the 1995 Spike Lee movie Clockers), Khan's reggae-tinged cover version of Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere", the duet "Never Miss the Water" with Me'shell Ndegéocello, "Somethin' Deep", "Your Love Is All I Know" and "Every Little Thing". A seventh title, "It Ain't Easy Lovin' Me", was released as an exclusive bonus track on the Japanese edition of Epiphany: The Best of Chaka Khan: Vol. 1.

Another seven recordings from the Dare You To Love Me sessions have surfaced on movie soundtracks, compilations or other artists' albums; "Miles Blowin'" (a tribute to the late Miles Davis, included on the Sugar Hill soundtrack, 1994), "Free Yourself" (on the To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar soundtrack, 1995), "Don't Take Back Your Love" (on Gerry DeVeaux's album Devoted Songs, 1996), Khan's recording of the jazz standard "My Funny Valentine" (on the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack, 1996), "Pain" (co-written by Prince, on the soundtrack to TV sitcom Living Single, 1997), "You And I Are One" and "Power" (both on the 1998 Zebra Records compilation A Song A Day). Three further recordings from the Dare You To Love Me sessions, including the title track, officially remain unreleased.[3][4][5]---Wikipedia

In this website http://seand85.tripod.com...l/id3.html they say:

"We had a struggle remastering (and cleaning!) the raw mp3 files for 'Let My Heart Go', 'Color Of A Dream I Had', and 'Whatever I Want' (courtesy of Serious Chakaholic Wallysong!), but the work was well worth it!!"

So they have done a proper compilation of all available tracks.

Sean is a Prince.org member. He posts once in a blue moon. I don't know if he is still selling his compilation CDs though. If he sees this post, I'm sure he will chime in. biggrin

Not sure if that email address is still valid as he stopped updating his music sites years ago. If the email didn't come back as Undeliverable, perhaps he still has and checks that email.

even though most of the tracks are out there,in some form or another,I still want this CD to be released someday.I think Chaka feels the same.This music is too good to not get an official release.
