"Demo" Recordings From The Early Days Of Rock & Roll

09/29/12 8:00PM

The way many songwriters get their songs to the artists who record them is by making demonstration recordings or "demos" of these songs. These demos are not designed to be ever heard by the general public and provide fascinating insights into the creative process of making a hit record. This week Joel features a collection of these very rare demos from the early days of Rock & Roll.
