Never heard before “Dreams” demo has surfaced

A never heard before demo of “Dreams” from 1990 was published 2 days ago on YouTube. According to YouTube user AGMP – a concert promoter in the UK – this one was produced and paid for by EPIC RECORDS who were considering signing the band.

This very rare version has a spoken intro and differs from all the demos we already know of, although it does sound a bit like a less mixed version of the Xeric demo without the intro.

Stuart Clark, from Hot Press, once mentioned that “Dreams” had a spoken word intro for a brief period, so this is likely the version he was talking about! PURE GEM.

Thanks to Cranberries Library for noticing.

    The spoken words don’t sound like the band members voices right? Who is it? Mike Mahony?
