I feel bad for everyone who wasn`t around and young back then.
(BTW, you`ll see - among many rare and great photos - a shot of Laura with Miles. She wanted to work with him on New York Tendaberry but he said that there was nothing he could add to it).

The repeated piano chord progression on that demo almost predicts the so called 'Allegro' section from Jimmy Webb's MacArthur Park, still a couple of years away.

Another demo from 1966. Listening to 'Enough Of You' it just makes me wish that she'd recorded a fully realised studio version for her first album:
