Master tapes...

<<... and I take it the heartbreakers demos will be taken from the masters rather than a bootleg tape ? >>

Roy can probably answer this better than I, but I believe the master tapes for these demos are long missing. 7, 9, and 10 song variants of these demos circulate among collectors in widely varying sound quality, but as far as I know none sound any better than the 3 tracks on current copies of R.I.P.

It's a shame the master is missing, but at the time I'm sure no-one thought about how sought-after they might be later. It's not nearly as surprising as the missing master tapes to Hell's Ork/Stiff EP (all current CD copies are from vinyl), or, say, the commercial CD of the Real Kids debut, which I just noticed is also copied from vinyl!
