This video is incredible. The Boys In Ď69 recording in Brianís home studio. Itís obvious they arenít recording ďI can hear musicĒ, so what were they tracking? Itís something thatís uptempo and has a lot of guitar. Also, thereís one shot at 1:19 of Carl singing outside. Has there ever been anything written about if they recorded vocals outdoors at Brianís?

And we also see Steve Desper a few times too! Could you provide any info, Steve?

There are definitely two or may even three different days there - and who knows how much time elapsed between them. One shot we see Bruce with a moustache in a blue turtleneck, then another of Bruce with a moustache in what looks like a green short-sleeve turtleneck (which I didn't know existed), other shots show Bruce with longer hair and a cream coloured button up shirt.

As mentioned in my book they were filmed during sessions for time to get alone in October 1968 and the producers of the American band video actually dubbed in that song for their movie-which was cool

That was one of the few times that the audio and video in AAB matched correctly, if I remember.

All of it? I'm only asking because I thought the music for that had already been tracked by October 1968 and it seems they are, in some of the shots, tracking music as well. By the looks of it, the song is pretty upbeat - check out what Al is playing on guitar at 0:55 or the drums that Dennis is playing at 1:14. It looks like Dennis and Carl are doing two drum parts at 1:35.

It seems they were at least rehearsing another song there as well. But, again, there are multiple days that we are seeing here.
