NOTES:

According to Jack Sherman, the band recorded some demos for their first album in early 1984. Mommy, Where's Daddy? is the only song he remembers from the session, but a large portion of what ended up on the first album (including the tracks that had already been recorded at the earlier demo session) would most likely have been tracked as well, especially the songs that Sherman had a hand in writing, such as Baby Appeal and Buckle Down. 

In their books True Men Don't Kill Coyotes and Fornication, authors Dave Thompson and Jeff Apter state that a demo of Baby Appeal was recorded at the band's initial demo session, however that fact remains unlikely. If one was recorded, it was most likely done so at this session. Furthermore, in Fornication, Apter states that a demo of True Men Don't Kill Coyotes existed, so it was probably done at this session as well.

To date, nothing from these sessions has surfaced officially or unofficially, and they have never been addressed elsewhere by the band.
