Notes -
"Here are three tracks taken from a recently unearthed demo cassette. The first track features Chrissie with Steve Jones and Paul Cook (from the Sex Pistols). It's a rocking Phil Spector/Wizzard-style affair and definitely deserves circulation. A colleague suggests it may come from a Johnny Thunders session circa May 1978 but this is unconfirmed. The other two tracks sound like 4-track demos. Transferred by Douglas B. - July 2008. Thanks to Tim B. for finding/funding the tape. Please do not encode to mp3 or sell!"

Some info from Phil's all-knowing Cook and Jones website:
"I just discovered your great Cook and Jones site and it got me digging through my old punk stuff. Found a small pic of me wearing a Professionals t-shirt from when I worked with the Pretenders and Dave Hill was managing them and The Professionals. Then I found a demo cassette that Dave had given me which features Chrissie Hynde and Steve and Paul (listed on the tape as Chrissie Hyde.! .Chrissie Steve and Paul). It is a version of the Ronettes 'Do I Love You'; Chrissie's vocals over the unmistakeable Cook and Jones 'wall of sound'...Chrissie shares verses with Steve.

"The other side of the tape has 2 Pretenders demos. I first heard the track at Dave's office and he told me there were plans for it to be a single but I guess contractual reasons got in the way (Cook/Jones signed to Virgin, Pretenders on WEA). I never got to find out where or exactly when it was recorded, perhaps at the Thunders' 'So Alone' sessions as all three appear on that album, and Thunders was also managed by Dave Hill. I know my tape is one of very few produced...

"I once did a copy for a friend of Chrissie's in the USA and it appeared on a bootleg box set although the copy had become damaged by the sound of it and they only listed it as 'lost' Chrissie demo! My tape was hardly ever played and remained locked away for many, many years in my collection; shame I don't have a cassette player any more!" http://www.philjens.plus.com/kickdown/HyndeCookJones.htm
