I was just watching these on YouTube yesterday. Very interesting to hear the early versions of those songs!

The twist ending to "Tomorrow Is A Latter Day" in this early version is WAY darker than we got in the show.

Wow, "H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks" is way funnier than "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" - which was my least favorite part of the show when I saw it in previews.

No, Jeff Marx is not on the recording. Most of the singing is Trey Parker, with Matt Stone and Bobby Lopez doing bits as well, I believe. No Jeff Marx though.

Interesting that the original big Elder Price solo, "They Lie", isn't here. I know it was recorded.

The most interesting thing to me, and this is probably esoteric to most of the posters, is the original title to "Hasa Diga Ebowai" -- namely, "Vasa Diga Elohai." It's not the "Vasa" or even the "Diga," but how eerily close "Elohai" is to the Hebrew term "Elohim," which is sometimes used in the Old Testament to refer to God. I wonder if the reference was deliberate or not.
