There are a number of demos from Tim's Before and After album that, er, circulate. Notably on this board, user Painaporo has posted a theoretical "deluxe" version of Before and After that includes many of these demos.
My question is, where did these demos come from? Did they originate in any legitimate source, e.g., MySpace? Were they available for streaming at some time and is that how they proliferated? Or did they just appear as a rather illegitimate bootleg that then proliferated in digital form?
AS some of you know, I am running a discussion on the Steve Hoffman boards on Finn Brothers songs, and I wish to include any song that saw some kind of wide-spread artist-sanctioned release, however brief it was: this includes streaming services, films, etc -- but I do not wish to discuss songs that were NEVER released. I'm wondering which side these demos fall on.
