3-24-2004
Hikki's cover of "I Love You" Studio Version is released on the album "BLUE - TRIBUTE TO YUTAKA OZAKI" by SME Records

Note: It seems a studio version was recorded, but Hikki felt that she wanted to use the Live version from her Bohemian Summer 2000 concert. Apparently Hikaru was interested in the idea of using her performance from when she was 17, since Ozaki was also 17 at the time of his recording of "I Love You." So the track "I Love You" on this album will be the Live Performance version.
