The next demo's were offered for the movie Harum scarum but not recorded; I have no additional information.

Forbidden love;
Let yourself go - later on used in the movie Speedway;
Beg borrow or steal;
Lollipos and rainbows;
Little dancing girl;
To be in love with you;
In my harem.

So called "experts" said it's fake; so there's a reason to delete this.
