Date: May 1, 2023 07:06

In December 2006, the following information was posted here. Does anyone know the source for this information: 691201A 1st December: West Palm Beach, Florida, Colonnades Hotel. Unverified
Jam-session, incl.
- Lawdy Miss Clawdy (Lloyd Price)
Line-up: MJ (voc, handclaps)/KR (p)

691202A 2nd - 4th December: Florence, Alabama, Muscle Shoals Sound Studios.
Producer: Jimmy Miller. Sound engineer: Jimmy Johnson.
2nd December:
- You Gotta Move I (Fred McDowell/Rev. Gary Davis) -unverified
Note: About nineteen takes of You Gotta Move were recorded, most of them were
erased.
3rd December:
- Brown Sugar I (MJ/KR) -STU on piano, very early vocal mix, with "oh baby" at end
- Loving Cup (MJ/KR) -unrecorded, MJ (voc, p) only
Note: The Stones rehearsed Brown Sugar the whole night until they had a proper take.
4th December:
- Wild Horses I (MJ/KR) - with Jim Dickinson on tack piano, given as demo to Gram
Parsons.
- Brown Sugar II (MJ/KR) - STU on piano; new vocals, no sax, much better mix to
version I, from "Decca-acetate"
- Say It’s Not You (Dallas Frazier) -unrecorded; KR on piano only
- Your Angel Steps Out Of Heaven (Jack Ripley) -unrecorded; KR on piano only
Note: The Stones recorded all in all twelve takes of Wild Horses, most of them were
erased.
The recordings (and the stay in Alabama) were filmed by the Maysles brothers
for the upcoming Gimme Shelter-movie.

The source is surely Nico Zentgraf's fabulous website.

Jimmy Miller is listed as "producer" but he wasn't there!

You could make the argument that his post-production of those tracks (mixing, etc.) made him the Producer (a term that can mean a lot of different things but is not strictly defined), yet I wouldn't give him that credit for those recording sessions.

You can make the argument of Miller being the producer as 1) they played live in the studio with only an engineer recording it, and 2) the final released track only has drums, bass and one guitar from the session. All else was recorded at Olympics in 1970.

Mattijs--is the piano that jim Dickinson played in Muscle Shoals not on the final verion on the album?

How is anyone sure that "Loving Cup," "Say It's Not You" and "Your Angel Steps Out of Heaven" were played but not recorded?
