Michaels original 'Behind The Mask' demo which was released on the 'Michael' Album. 'She's Trouble' which was presented to Quincy by songwriters Terry Britten, Sue Shifrin and William Livsey for consideration, it was recorded but ultimately did not make the album. 'The Toy' is an early version of 'Best of Joy' which was indented for a movie of the same name.
