Alan Wilder provided at least four demo tracks for "Some Great Reward". These tracks are thought by many to be [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Flag_%28band%29 Red Flag] or [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Start_Counting_%28band%29 I Start Counting] demos (in the latter's case, band member David Baker even claimed two of the demo tracks as his), however that does not seem to be the case; these demos are almost certainly Alan's.

as last info, i asked to Daniel a song called "All By Themselves" a Martin Gore's demo It's a very gloomy, depressing sounding song with vocals subdued and difficult to comprehend, he told me about that song was going to be the b-side of And Then... and was planned to be the third single of the album but the single was never released due the construction tour in 1983 was coming very soon, and later the idea was abandoned

[[Until You've Sown The Seed]] is sometimes referred to as "Cliché" due to the song's tongue-in-cheek lyrics, and due to misheard lyrics the song is also sometimes referred to as "Until You Saw The Sea".

On another written information sheet, ''seven'' Alan demo tracks are mentioned, but my contact does not have a copy of this tape. I am unaware of any other Alan Wilder demo tracks at this time. A photo of this info sheet is provided to the right.
    
I have transcribed the lyrics to all of these tracks with the best of my ability, along with some help from [[User:Ronny|Ronny]]. They are included in this torrent as ''lyrics.txt''. You can also find the lyrics for each track if you click on their title in the track listing below.
