PJ Harvey To Bring You My Love (Demos). PJ Harvey has recently been releasing the demos for her first three albums - Dry (1992), Rid Of Me (1993), and To Bring You My Love (1995). The demos are raw and are a revelation - and they remind us just how much PJ rocked in the early 90s, easy to forget when considering today's more "proper" and restrained version of PJ.
