The j-card says “Live Mix,” while the tape says “Demo.” I would guess that these songs were either recorded live in the studio or mixed in the same fashion a live show would be. All in all, what you have here are six songs that were re-recorded on their debut CD The Waiting, all four of the songs from Demo II (including two of the six from The Waiting), and two songs that I don’t think appeared on any other demos or recordings (although also note that “Fighting Fire With Fire” and “Jamie” never made it off Demo II). “If You Want Love” is one of those songs, but the other one doesn’t have a title listed. So I called it “I Saw Jesus Through Your Eyes” as that is what is repeated in the chorus. So four songs total that weren’t on their two national CDs. Also, as you can see above, the first three songs are listed by name, with the other seven as “additional.” I don’t note any difference in song quality or tape hiss or anything on those seven, so I am not sure why they weren’t listed. Anyways, this demo is not far off from their debut CD – even the four songs not on that album sound like they would fit there easily. The recording is a bit muffled, but not too bad. Seems to be a rare collectible. For those not familiar with Fighter they were a rock/AOR band led by a husband/wife team. They could play and write songs in that genre well, and their two in-demand CDs are rare and often expensive.
