The 1995 Sessions is a 2009 compilation album consisting of previously unreleased demo tracks previously recorded by Australian singer Dannii Minogue fourteen years earlier. It has been be released by Palare on 7 December 2009. The album consists of rare and previously unheard songs recorded for what would have been Minogue's then third studio album.[4]

Album history[edit]

Minogue began writing and recording her third studio album in 1994. The completed album, however, was never released following a disagreement between Minogue and her label MCA Records over its distribution.[4]

In October 2009, Minogue announced that the previously unreleased recordings would be remastered and commercially released.[5] The album was originally scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on 23 November 2009, but was pushed to a 7 December release.

A draft track list of the album was published by online retailers before the listing was finalized. This listing featured a song titled "I Got This Feeling" (written and produced by the UK based dance music team Love to Infinity), however, when the final track list appeared, this track was no longer included. In its place appeared two tracks; "Take My Time Loving You" and "Coconut (Original Version)".[6] It has since been stated by Minogue's website administrator that the newly completed remix of "I Got This Feeling" did not fit with the sound of the album.

Two previously released Japanese only singles recorded during these sessions with Japanese dance music act Eurogroove; Rescue Me and Boogie Woogie were not included on this album.
