You could spend a lifetime and never find in the stacks of your local used record store a 1964 seven-inch demo record of the Rolling Stones doing Willie Dixon’s “Little Red Rooster".

Today we call these "promotional copies", and reserve the word “demo” for tracks that songwriters record on a budget when trying to sell a song to a producer. These too are collectable. Search the listings for “seven-inch demo” and start your own world-class collection.
