Lineage:  CD_R trade/WAV > EAC/FLAC encode level 6

Total length: 20 mins 08 seconds approx.

Many issues of these recordings are out so It's better make order in the whole thing.
Boys Cry will come out as single for the new Broudie's band Original Mirrors in 1980.
It exists a bootleg known as Penny's Cafe Demos but it contains mixed together alternate takes and the versions come out in singles, EP and compilations. I've cut off all the songs come out in their official shape and here you can find only material never published.
track 01 is a different version of their first single (1977)
The real Penny's Cafe Demos are tracks from 02 to 07.
Penny's Cafe was the venue where BIJ made the pictures set used in "To the shored of a Lake Placid" booklet and where they recorded the promo video for Cindy and the Barbie Dolls.
Track 8 is the audio from their unique Tv Appearances at Tony Wilson's What's On at Granada TV February, 23th, 1978.
(If someone on Dime have this video, please upload it! He could make happy a poor soul!)
