Also from 1967, and of far more interest, is 1984’s professionally recorded Thames Television demo tape.
During his first-year of study at Twickenham Technical College, Dave Dilloway had made friends with a number of technicians, or trainee technicians, at the Teddington-based ITV Company, which served the London area.
The station had recently invested in new recording equipment, and rather than hire professional musicians at the usual union rate, in a set up similar to the first Queen sessions at the De Lane Lea studios, 1984 were let loose in the studio to record at their leisure.
Dave Dilloway’s carefully preserved tape still plays perfectly, and includes the following songs: “Hold On I’m Coming”, “Knock On Wood”, “NSU”, “How Can It Be”, two early run-throughs of the original May/Staffell composition “Step On Me” (which eventually became the B-side to Smile’s “Earth”), “Purple Haze”, “Our Love Is Drifting'”, and medleys of “Remember”/”Sweet Wine” and “Get Out My Life Woman”/”Satisfaction”.
The session ended with a run-through of “My Girl”.

“What an extraordinary amalgam!” declares Tim Staffell today.
“There’s Tamla, Cream, Hendrix, Lee DorseyƖ ‘Our Love Is Driftin’ ‘, we’d have heard by Paul Butterfield.
I’d forgotten there was such a large soul component in 1984!”

Dave Dilloway has the technical details: “This tape is the most recent, best and most representative of 1984 that I’m aware of.
It is mono, but since it was made on good quality TV studio equipment and was carried out along the lines of a proper studio recording, with separately mixed microphones for each source, it is remarkably good quality for its age.
The material, except for ‘Step On Me’, is all cover versions, but as it dates from the late 1984 era, Brian’s playing is more prominent and effective, with his own style starting to show through.
All the performances are competent – particularly Tim’s vocals and Brian’s guitar; although the mix is a little heavy on John’s rhythm guitar for some reason, probably the ‘ear’ of the recording engineer at the time.
All tracks were laid down in one take, i.e., no overdubbing at all, so the sound is predominantly simple, as per our live versions.”
