"This is the original demo of 'One' that we recorded on James' 4-track right after we wrote the song around the second week of November '87. It's basically just guitars, drums, and vocals with Kirk coming in and laying down the last solo after he'd only heard the song the day before, and since there were only four tracks, there's no bass."
