Demo Tapes are recordings (once on cassette or reel to reel, although CDs and digital files have taken their place) created by artists who are working on example versions of their songs and audio, often with the intention of sharing with bandmates, or providing to managers and contributors for potential choices for final release. They range from unique initial versions of later popular songs, to never-otherwise-recorded efforts, saved once on one tape.

In hip hop's earliest days, the music only existed in live form, and the music was spread via tapes of parties and shows. Hip hop mixtapes first appeared in the mid-1970s in New York City, featuring artists such as Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa. As more tapes became available, they began to be collected and traded by fans. In the late 70's into the early 80's DJs began recording mixtapes out of their homes, referring to them as House Tapes. DJs such as Harold G. (who later became known as Whiz...

Many are seeking authenticity, reality and sincerity in the Christian faith. In a day when popular preachers are telling lies (Jeremiah 5:30-31), there is a great renewed desire to find the real Jesus in the midst of the...
