AllMusic Review by

Rare Demos: First to Last compiles all 24 publisher's demos that the country Music Foundation originally released as The First Recordings and Just Me and My Guitar. These are stark, moving recordings that cut to the core of each songs. Though the master takes are masterpieces in their own right, the demo versions are equally essential for dedicated fans, since they offer new insights to Williams' songwriting, as well as his performance technique.
