...and back to those Le Baron Boys' tapes again...

It appears that the original upload died with the demise of Hotfile some time back, but the core of the Le Baron Boys demos can be found via this YouTube link.

This was posted on the official Europe facebook page sometime last year and is the YouTube upload that I mentioned on the Le Baron Boys thread further down.

The audio quality isn't great, but more than good enough to showcase the songs themselves. Twenty years down the line, however, I find it somewhat surreal that the suits didn't at least deem a few of these songs commercial enough at the time... Sure, some of the material could (and would) no doubt have been developed further during proper tracking/production, but I'm left with the thought that trends certainly have changed!

A clear seventy-ish, hammond and overdriven guitars-vibe is also present on several of the songs here and a mere couple of years down the line the retro trend would seep into the grunge movement like the most natural thing in the world. Europe: Painfully ahead of their time? Oh, the irony...
