An unreleased tape featuring some of Madonna's earliest recordings has been unearthed. The tape, which was recorded roughly 27 years ago, captures the era in Madonna's life when she was living in the basement of a Queens, New York synagogue with Ed and Dan Gilroy, who was her boyfriend at the time. Madonna spoke about the brothers in her reflective induction speech at this year's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony. Snippets of that speech are interspersed with the old recording, which features one of her early songs "Born To Be A Dancer." The tape also features Madonna playing guitar and drums on the "first song" she'd ever written, "Tell the Truth." Soon after the recordings, as Madonna also noted in her Hall of Fame speech, she and her band began playing NYC venues like CBGB and Max's Kansas City. Based on the excerpts, it's safe to say that Madonna would have made an awesome Debbie Harry if she didn't become the Material Girl.
