It's an instrumental which features the "Breaking Up" - "Single" riff.

A third variant! MJ was obviously determined to use that riff, not sure why...JJ Cale had already done it better on 'Cocaine'...or is it my imagination?

I presume the one you refer as 'Albatross Thing' is the one titled 'Rockfield Jam' on the expanded BGTY.

So that's three tracks from the sessions that ultimately resulted in the BGTY band being formed...I wonder if there's more? Are they dated at all?
I have bits and pieces of Micky's home recordings. They date from a period when the band broke up, so are post 1976. The stand out track for me is 'Girl so Shy'. I did ask Micky who played on it, I can't remember the names he told me but there were definitely no members of Man.
Sorry for my eagerness Ron, but my obsession is becoming compulsive!

This would be the first instance then. The Single came next, and finally Breaking Up Once Again. No date was given to me, and the early Bananas sure wasn't on the reel Micky spooled these off of. It's a good riff. I think the Single was a near miss. Great song, great vocals, great guitars.

....i look forward to read this soon...

Davey, it's a good read. Even better is 'Rhinos Winos & Lunatics' in which Deke covers his period with Man and is perhaps one of the funniest books ever.

 
reading the rhinos book definitely put me over the edge in wanting to be part of some kind of man renaissance....i am excited to read said book and to belabor my book club(who has already been belabored with the  rhinos book along with man farewell roundhouse,rockapalast,and god walking past)with it...ok back to the previously scheduled program of threadliness...

...and what a fun packed schedule we have, Davey!

Ok Ron, seeing as we learn more about the band from you than anyone else, what was specifically wrong with the bass parts that Ray had to replace on Maximum Darkness? I heard that '7171' was one and 'Bananas' the other...DI'd as well!

Still seems a little odd that despite MA having left by the time they were mixing, it would have been presumably quicker/easier/cheaper studio time than getting Ray to do them from scratch...

In which case we need to know what stimulant Micky settled on for each variant before we can make a decision on that one!
