•    Before Milwaukee-born singer/songwriter Eric Benét began his solo career and began his ascent to international recognition as a best-selling contemporary recording artist and performer, he was a member of a short-lived duo with his sister Lisa that was known simply as Benét. The duo released a CD on EMI Records in 1992 that has become a curio collectible for fans of quality music and all curious about Eric’s formative roots as a recording artist.

• The primary creative forces behind the project were Eric and his cousin George Nash Jr. (who has continued to work with him through his solo projects) who co-wrote five of the tracks together.  Nash also co-produced seven cuts, working on five with renowned smooth jazz/R&B keyboardist and producer Jeff Lorber and with the late Robert Brookins and with Bryan Loren on one track each.  Songwriter Sami McKinney (known for songs recorded by Anita Baker, Nancy Wilson and Patti LaBelle among others) produced three cuts with Lorber as co-producer. The CD’s only single, “Only Want To Be With You” reached No. 75 on the US Top 100 R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart.

• The CD included a soulful version of The Carpenters’ classic hit, “Rainy Days And Mondays.”  As Eric explained in an interview for the notes by A. Scott Galloway for this 2013 reissue, “We grew up loving harmony… The Carpenters always did innovative vocal things that we loved so “Rainy Days and Mondays” was a natural choice…” Notes include quotes from Eric, Lisa, George Nash Jr. Jeff Lorber and executive Alison Ball Kilmer.

• This expanded edition includes an instrumental version of “Only Want To Be Witih You”.
