In the black n white photo of the guitars and amps, there is a bunny rabbit on the left, but it does not appear to have any pancakes on its head. Why not?

do you mean literally photos of the whole band? Jim Marshall of course took a bunch of well-known photos
of the Glimmer Twins and of Keith at Sunset Sound in 72 - i don't know about the whole band, though ...

Yeah ... Mathijs, don't be so damn quick and assured with your "facts" all the time. Few things are definite in a subject like this.

I'm not claiming to have the truth either, but I definitely think theanchorman is correct in his points.

Also, Loving Cup (as well as Shine A Light and a few more) were not only recorded in LA '72, they were done as early as '69-70.

Those are some amazing pictures--really great thanks for posting.

I am pretty sure the infamous story of Keith waking up Andy Johns at 5:00 in the morning to record a guitar part was about Rocks Off.

Loving Cup was worked on and recorded earlier (even as far back as 1969), but the version that appears on the album was re-recorded in LA.

Shine a Light was recorded at Stargroves, overdubs done in LA.

Tumbling Dice was started at Olympics London and finished in LA.

Soul Survivor was started at Nellcote, but the demo was totally re-recorded in LA due to sound problems in the recordings.

Rocks Off is harder to tell: according to Jimmy Miller it was started in Nellcote, but completely rerecorded in LA, but according to Andy Johns the drums and guitar were done at Nellcote.

Most of this information comes from Jimmy Miller and Andy Johns, but you can (most of the time) also hear it in the recording: the drums recorded at Nellcote sound different to the drums recorded in Olympics and LA. The Nellcote drums have a boxy, airy demo-style sound to it, while all other drums have this punch and directness. Check the drums on Ventilator Blues and Happy to Loving Cup and Tumbling Dice, the differences are clear.

Also maybe due to Jimmy Miller playing the drums on Happy and I think he plays drums on the latter part of Tumbling Dice.

Interesting information. It does sound reasonable. I've never thought about the drums sounding different, but it has crossed my mind that most of Exile sounds too clear to be coming from Nellcote. Some stuff, like Happy and I Just Wanna See His Face are obvious Nellcote jams, but like you said, the directness and punch owes a lot to Olympic and LA. I'd say Jagger's contributions to this album are a bit underrated even though most of us geeks know he kind of "took control" once they got to LA. It's also very likely, which has been said, that many of the tracks were worked on at Nellcote but few of those parts remain (I'd say Tumbling Dice could be such a case).

To your credit, Mathijs, I gotta admit that a well-trained musician's/producer's ear can often be a much better resource than loose -- sometimes contradicting -- quotes from other people.
