    Tracks 1-4 (and the cover pic shown) are from Demo 1982 ("For Demonstration only").
    Tracks 1-7 appear on the homonymous Demo 1983 ("For Demonstration only") with the same cover artwork but colored - the tracks 1-4 were added as bonus tracks on this.
    So actually this is the 1983 edition which contains all tracks from the 1982 edition.

    Reason: RW: topic title changed from "1982" to "1982+1983" as it fits both editions / Strappado: some fixes

    This is actually both their 1982 and 1983 demos put together. The first 4 tracks are off the 1982 WHITE cover "For Demonstration Only" demo as pictured, the final 3 are off the 1983 RED (handcolored recycled of the original white) cover "For Demonstration Only" demo. The 1983 demo was being given away in select record stores by band members, very few exist and it's easily their rarest of the 3.

    Oh...and if anyone is feeling lucky; What was the name of Grim Reaper's giant Reaper back-prop in their early days? Anyone who can answer this one correctly gets major respect points! (great)
