Straight - 4-Track Demos (1998)

Here's something we're pretty thrilled to hear again. Years ago, we were lucky enough to hear some early demo versions of songs Joe McCaffery was kicking around for his then-new band, Straight. So when Joe surprised us by finding the very tape that we heard some 17 years ago, we were kind of over the moon.

This is a set of songs that, apart from "Devil Doll" and "Brains," Joe never gave over to Straight, finding them perhaps too dark. The songs were recorded over about three years, from late 1995 to 1998.

Thanks again to Joe for unearthing this gem.

Straight also recorded several full band demos to 8-track in late 1994.
