Chrissie Hynde-Demos circa 1978

Demos recorded in 1978 by Chrissie Hynde before she fronted the Pretenders have recently been discovered. The 3 track demo cassette includes a song, "Do I Love You" recorded with Sex Pistol members Steve Jones and Paul Cook possibly from a recording session for Johnny Thunder's album, So Alone. The song has a Phil Spector-type feel to it and is well worth the listen.

The other songs are 4-track recordings including Mercy Mission an early version of The Phone Call from the Pretenders' debut. The other song, Suicide is previously unreleased.

01. Do I Love You
02. Mercy Mission (Phone Call)
03. Suicide
The previous mp3 links were not longer available, instead I re-uploaded the files to an upgraded FLAC (uncompressed) version. Let me know if these links do not work.
