I do believe there is even more to come…The videos above run approximately 100 minutes but there is probably almost 4hrs of music/jams/instrumentals/demos to this.

Was this already circulating or it’s fresh out of someone’s vault?

As far as I can tell this is new but it is not yet clear where it was leaked from. The recordings cover the whole Dave era with demos and alternative mixes/overdubs from all 6 albums and from the original WB demo. They run for over 4 hours, at least that’s what I’ve seen.

These tracks are absolutely astounding. There are so many things we have never heard before. For example: the raw guitar track of Unchained with the part under the solo, the undubbed raw master take (Tk 3) of You Really Got Me with Dave’s scratch vocal, and on and on. The WB Demos sound PHENOMENAL here. I am blown away. This is truly a VH fans dream release. Selfishly, I hope there is more, but man….. this leak is incredible….
