They call them the "million dollar demos," recordings made in 2001 as a test-run for their One By One album, a record that had a long and difficult birth process. Fans will remember that Dave and the crew gave up for a while. Dave cleared his head by recording and touring with Queens of the Stone Age.
These tracks--recorded at a cost of a million bucks, hence their name--have never seen the light of day. Most are still locked away somehow, but two songs--alternate versions of "Have It All" and "Come Back" have escaped into the wild.
