Milli Vanilli: The Rob And Fab Album

My oh my. This album was produced without the help of "Girl" producer Frank Farian, and the two best things I can say about it are that it doesn't rely on samples from other recordings, and that Rob and Fab trash Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me" as the last track. According to the VH1 Behind The Music special, there were only 3000 (2000?) of these that were pressed, so they're in short supply. Plus, the CD distributor is in Minneapolis (the Crap From The Past World Headquarters)!
