Note: V1 was recorded at Atlantic Studios on the evening of June 1, 1977, and though this take is a little sloppy and only available on bootleg, Bruce and the band play with magic energy not to be repeated. For some reason, this was not realized, and over the next two years, Bruce tried and retried to get what he wanted on tape. V2 was recorded on July 1, 1977 (also at Atlantic), and V3 was a complete take on September 12, at The Record Plant. V3 was not to be the final take. V4 and V5 were recorded on May 31, 1979 at the Power Station, New York. There was another session on June 21, and mixing/dubbing on September 24, 1979, but the final May 31 take was the one used for Tracks. This is fine for some, but when comparing V5 to V1, the thought occurs that the June 1 take, remastered and cleaned up, could blow V2-V5 out of the water.
