Billboard Magazine were told on reliable terms that the demos that Amy had recorded for her record label Universal had been destroyed for “moral” reasons. Releasing someone's work after their death seemed inappropriate at the time. However, during her former years as an unsigned artist, Amy did what every aspiring musician does and made lots of demos. It was in 1997 when she met up with Gil Cang. He told the Camden New Journal recently that he'd found one of Amy Winehouse's old demo tapes from some sessions he did ten years before she died. He's put a track on YouTube for the world to hear.
News like this travels fast and with over half a million views in just a few days, the trending track deserves an Alternative Fruit thumbs up. Take a listen to the video, enjoy the sounds of Amy Winehouse pre-fame, and tip the hat to the songwriters, Gil Cang and James McMillan, who gave her the fantastic material that helped lift her to the top.
