Does anyone know when this 7" was released? Late 90s?

Judging my some of the dates from releases on that label I'd say probably early 2000s

https://www.discogs.com/label/196552-Digital-House

this is BDH-009 and BDH 005 was released in 2000 according to the discogs page

Ah! Why didn't I think of that? :D
Thank you!

I was just thinking that the lack of email address / website on the label suggested 90s rather than 2Ks, but this is of course not a reliable way of extrapolating the date of release.

Where did that date come from though? A lot of people on Discogs are really crappy at inserting confirmed information (such as dates). Seen stuff that is way off. Radics-playing from '80–'81 inserted as '76 etc. By the looks of it the date doesn't come from anywhere on the actual record and there's no information on where it was taken from.

It could very well be correct but then again it might just have been that editors approximation. If it's 2000 then hopefully some old online record store database might have the information.

ReggaeRecord.com added Glen Washington - Poor And Needy on the same label 2011 to their database. Checking around on the label it seems I can't find any proof (discussions on forums, mixes, record stores with dates etc.) that has any of them earlier than 2011. Is there anyone here that knows for certain that they've held a copy prior to that?
