10 Fascinating Early Demos by Famous Musicians


You may remember various demos from Radiohead’s earliest days, when they were called On a Friday, surfacing on the web last year. This is the earliest one we can find, dating from 1986 — it’s called “Girl in a Purple Dress,” and includes a) a saxophone solo and b)the lines “I’ll do whatever you want me to/ And stay for jasmine tea.” Aw, bless.
