Really cool find, thanks for sharing. I haven't heard that demo for The Good Will Not Be Cloned in years. I always liked the demo better than the original version, but I get why he changed it, at least now in retrospect I feel like the demo probably sounded too similar to We Are Rock to put on the album in that form.

I find it very hard to believe those two songs were actually released like that on the official Have I / Uphold Your Love vinyl. can we get confirmation from someone who has a copy of that vinyl as to whether or not it really sounds like that?
I actually think it's neat to finally find digital copies of Uphold Your Love / Have I. I personally didn't care for the Dwarf Mountain Alphabet album in general, but the bonus songs are decent. It does sound like the audio was somewhat processed in the digital versions from this archive, really missing the low end. I'm not really an expert. I do own the 7" single, and I re-ripped them to my PC last year since I have better equipment now. The turntable I used is my Audio Techinca LP120, amplified thru a Sony audio receiver from the 90s that I don't have with me so I don't have the model number, recorded thru Audacity. Even on my tinny laptop speakers, my rips sound much more full than the versions posted here. Feel free to listen to the ones I ripped here: https://mega.nz/folder/8dxXkZoK#vuglEhf7D1xJxoKcRK4L0A
