Track number 4 and the final track on the demo from 2010...
Continuing our activity in delving back through time rustling through cupboards and clearing shelves a 2010 demo recording of 4 songs of which 2 of them found their way onto the first album by the Crows has been unearthed.
"I had the thread of 4 songs namely Out In The Sun, A Little History, Destination Drive and Show Me You Have A Heart. I wanted to record the songs in a professional studio with professional musicians to see if they would stand up as quality numbers. I contacted long-standing Dover musician Mick Morris, formerly of well-renowned 1970's Dover, Kent prog-rock band Mirkwood and asked him to work on guitar parts for the songs for which he immediately came onboard. Mick listened to the songs and worked on the the ideas presented to him and finally we had the parts ready for recording. We then headed to Quantum Leap Studios at Monks Horton near Folkestone in March and April 2010 to record the songs. Under the engineering and production of Marcus Bishop the tracks were laid down.

The fourth and final song on the 4-track demo disc is Show Me You Have A Heart. Originally composed as a Bon Jovi-type rock ballad this demo version crossed-over to an R&B style. More Beyonce than Bon Jovi. This demo version features Gary along with Mick Morris and session musicians including a brilliant female lead vocal.
