Wikipedia states the following about Sweet‘s departure from Stryper back in 1992: “After nine years as the lead singer/lead guitarist of Stryper, Sweet left the band in 1992 in order to pursue a solo career. He first released a demo album titled Unstryped, which featured several songs allegedly intended for the band. Sweet later included some of these on his first full-length album.”
All four songs on the aforementioned CD of unreleased demos later appeared on Sweet‘s self-titled album released back in April 1994.
