Note: V1 represents rehearsals and takes from June-August 1977 at either Atlantic Studios and the Record Plant. Though recordings from the Darkness sessions have not and may never surface, there is enough Darkness-era documentation indicating a song by this name was worked on early in the sessions. At some point, it was set aside, and not picked up again until 1982, except for a recording on Lost Masters Volume 7, titled, "08 Untitled Harmonies #1", which is Bruce's da-da of a tune that is 95% "Darlington County" from January 1980. V3 is a band rehearsal from Colts Neck, New Jersey, recorded in April 1982, a rather pedestrian take, noted by both Max and Bruce at the conclusion of the song. V4 was recorded in a single take at the Power Station, New York on May 13, 1982. V4a, which appears to be a slightly longer, slower take on Lost Masters XIX is actually the released version V4b, before vocal overdubs, fixed- up intro, and the use of varispeed to speed the track up.
