I have made demo recordings for most of my life. I remember the day we made this one. Chaya had written a song and I wanted to get it down on tape before it was lost and forgotten. As I had done hundreds of times before, I set up the microphones and turned on the little cassette tape recorder. Then we recorded this first demo version of “PLEASE SLOW DOWN”. There are quite likely more demos in the files, but this one gives the original idea and conception of how we thought the song should go. as the song was professionally recorded by a production team in Kentucky later.
For comparison, here is the produced version created in a studio in Louisville, Kentucky. It is much cleaner, loses much the original idea, and becomes a 90s dance song.
