10 Song Demo is a 1996 album by Rosanne Cash, produced by her husband, John Leventhal. The album, her first for Capitol Records after having left Columbia, her label for fourteen years, included mostly stripped down acoustic tracks, despite the album's title, it actually contains eleven songs, not ten. The song "The Summer I Read Collette" was a tribute to French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette. Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt would later cover the song "Western Wall", including it on their 1999 collaboration Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions.
