Prince – Unreleased I'll Do Anything Demo Tape

An unreleased demo tape of songs written and performed by Prince for the aborted soundtrack to the 1994 film 'I'll Do Anything.' The film, written and directed by James L. Brooks, is the story of a down-on-his-luck actor who suddenly finds himself the sole caretaker of his six-year-old daughter. It was originally conceived as a musical, with Prince commissioned to write the music. This cassette contains multiple versions of the 14 songs Prince wrote and recorded for the film. When preview audiences reacted overwhelmingly negatively to advance screenings, Brooks cut the production number scenes and shot new scenes, radically restructuring the film; Prince's soundtrack too was a casualty of the restructuring and remained unused and unreleased. According to Wikipedia, 'while other versions of songs penned by Prince resurfaced on some of his later projects, 'Girl 6', and 'The Vault: Old Friends 4 Sale' none of the actual performances from the movie were ever officially released. This tape was given to an executive working with Prince at the time, from whom we obtained it. It contains 28 different versions of the following tracks: Wow/Make Believe/I'll Do Anything/Don't Talk 2 Strangers/My Little Pill/This Lonely Life/You Are The Best/Make Believe/Jeannie's Song/There Is Lonely/I Can't Love U Anymore/DNG Groove/Be My Mirror/Finale.
