This demo is notoriously confused with the 1982's For Demonstration Only release due to it using the same name and containing the Demo 82 (tracks 01-04), but they are both different demos. They are using the same artwork, but the 1983 release features a hand-colored red cover instead of the original white one.

The tape cover states that "Demo '83 was never released for sale" (separately)

This release was shared at 'Heavy Metal Gems' blog.

Well you can post it if you want, but I think it is a bit redundant because the 1982 demo is included in this release, which is side 1 (tracks 01-04) on this one.
