Note: "Santa Ana", referenced in 1973 Sony logs as "Hey Santa Anna", possibly received the former name for it's inclusion on "Tracks" in 1998. Also known as "My Contessa" and "The Guns of Kid Cole", thanks to bootleggers with unknown motives. Written in late 1972 or early 1973, and performed live regularly during 1973. Both V1 and V2 are early recordings from June 22 and 26, 1973, and remain uncirculated. V3 was recorded on June 28, 1973, and for many years was considered a complete, though unofficial, version. However, V4 released on Tracks, is an embellished mix, with overdubs added on July 1, 1973, including piano (David Sancious), a layer of acoustic guitar (Bruce), calypso percussion (Richard Blackwell) and Suki Lahav (vocals). The flute heard in V3 (courtesy of Clarence Clemons), has been entirely removed from V4. Mixing was done by Louis Lahav (1973) and Thom Panunzio (1998). Look for the lines "French cream won’t soften those boots, baby, French kisses will not break your heart"; since this track was never released, Bruce later put them to good use in "She’s the One".
