Trivia/Info[edit | edit source]

  • Very little is known about this demo. The tracks are scattered around the tape, with a substantial amount of blank space in between many tracks, indicating that there might have been more that have since been erased. For instance, Don't Let's Start is found in two locations: once on side B, and once on side A. However, side A only has part of the song, as it cuts in near the middle of the song.
  • The versions of Everything Right Is Wrong Again, (She Was A) Hotel Detective and Chess Piece Face (which are unique to this demo tape) are all very similar to the versions that are found on the The Pink Album.
  • The track Sally Boy Candy Bar appears to have been dubbed over by an unknown source.
