Note: V2 is a single take of Bruce working on the song, with mostly audible lyrics. V1, V3 and V4 are partial, interrupted takes. This demo evolved into a song rehearsed with the band in March 1979, a recording of which exists in private collections. The title of the 1979 song is unknown but a song titled "Love Won't Let You Down", included on a handwritten document that dates from the River sessions, may be the same song. V5 is probably from late March 1979, an evolution of a solo demos, all which can be found on 'Lost Masters IX', titled "Love Will Get You Down". As is typical with the Telegraph Hill recordings Bruce's voice is buried in the music making it hard to identify lyrics, but the lyric "Love Won't Let You Down" does not appear anywhere in this rehearsal. Based on what can be heard, "Love Will Be The Name" or "Love Will Be The Game" are possible titles, but a handwritten document from the River sessions includes the title "Love Won't Let You Down". Therefore it is possible that the actual title for this song is "Love Won't Let You Down", despite the lack of that phrase in the lyrics. A well-developed and practiced song, it's feasible that the song was subsequently recorded in the studio. although no songs with potentially matching titles exist in the studio logs. There is no relation between this song and "My Love Will Not Let You Down".
