Wearin' That Loved On Look (overdub)

  January 22 1969 (Wed: 12.00am - 3.00am)

Long Black Limousine (overdub)
XPA5 1142
  January 22 1969 (Wed: 4.00am - 7.00am)


Piano player Bobby Wood and guitar player Reggie Young are listed as having been included on overdubs of 'Long Black Limousine', but not 'Wearin' That Loved On Look' on January 22. A comparison with the undubbed session implies that it is rather the other way around with Reggie Young, as an overdubbed guitar can be identified on 'Wearin' That Loved On Look', but not on 'Long Black Limousine'. Apart from that, an overdubbed 'bell' is actually heard during the intro of 'Long Black Limousine' (double effect on piano notes). This is similar to the overdubbed bell sound on 'Mama Liked The Roses'. The bell instrument is not easily identified, but could be an electric piano, which in that case would confirm the Bobby Wood overdub information at least.

Finally, no brass at all can be identified on 'Wearin' That Loved On Look'.
