Liner Notes by Stuart Adamson (December 1998)
These songs in this format are not what a group would normally have you hear. They are our aural sketchpad, the first outlines of what eventually will become a fully-fledged album. They are naked and gawky, like a nesting chick, not yet ready to fly.
This stage is where we decide if a song will make the album or not and these are some of the fringe competitors. Maybe with the right approach some of them will develop and thrive, but when you have a lot of material the axe has to fall somewhere.
With the interest shown on the web site for demo material we decided to let this stuff be heard. I hope you find it interesting. For me, it’s a little like wandering on a stage in your underwear, now there’s a thought.
