Demo

A demo (frequently called a demotape, which has become a bit of a misnomer due to the popularity and accessibility of CD-Rs) is simply a recording made in a band's infancy to sell the band to a record label (whether it is major or not). These are typically hard to find, however some bands end up rereleasing them after a while. The quality is usually subpar, due to cheap recording equipment and media, but many people are willing to pay high prices for them, due to their usual rarity.
