Note: V1 and V2 were both recorded at CBS Studios on May 3, 1972. V3 was recorded at Mediasound Studios in May-June. V4, on the other hand, is from 914 Sound Studios on June 27, 1972. All four versions are solo-piano takes and each version is a slight improvement on its predecessor. However the V3 and V4 takes are remarkably similar in studio ambience and delivery – extremely difficult to tell apart. In V3 Bruce sings one line as “and you were pretty big in the south”. In V4 Bruce sings this line as “and, YEAH, you were pretty big in the south”. “Jazz Musician” was one of three songs bumped from Greetings to make way for last minute additions “Blinded By The Light” and “Spirit In The Night”. Some have speculated that the recording of the song that was eliminated from Greetings is another, yet-to-circulate take. V4 was later utilized as a publishing demo by Laurel Canyon.
