Note: V1 recorded at CBS Studios on May 3, 1972 and officially issued on Tracks. V2 likely recorded at Pocketful Of Tunes Studios, New York, NY in May-June, 1972. V3a and V3b are the same core recording (i.e. the same instrumental and vocal take). The only difference is that Bruce’s vocal on V1b is faded out several seconds earlier than in V1a, which reveals that there were a few “street rapping” words spoken by Bruce that were cut from the officially released version. Recorded June 26-27, 1972 with overdubs/mixing work undertaken on October 26.
