The Prince/Owen Husney demo tape taken to record companies as well as the "press kits" which were made included Baby and Soft And Wet. Make It Through The Storm was used as a backup in case the record label execs wanted to hear more.

But to prove that he could produce himself he recorded Just As Long As We're Together at a "test session" at Amigo Studio in L.A. This session was to 'prove' to warners that he could produce himself.

The session was attended by Warners execs.
