Note: Unfortunately, studio outtakes from 1978, when this song was composed and played live on the Darkness tour, do not appear to exist. V1 consists of harmonies and guitar practice. V2 take 12, V3 take 11, V4 take 9 V5 take 3 were recorded on the same night at The Power Station on May 29 and 30, 1979. These four takes feature a completely different, faster, rocking arrangement with alternative lyrics to both the 1978 live versions and the eventual River release. The mid-section includes a searing guitar solo. V6, which contains a newly written, extended narrative middle section, was recorded some months later, possibly on August 23 and 25, 1979 or February 16, 1980.
