Remember: no overdubs. To satisfy this goal, each musician brought in whatever needed to cover the range of sounds for each arrangement. For Mitchell, that meant a lone, but extremely versatile custom Strat with various pedals and articulative devices. Foreman played a 6-string bass through a carefully designed suite of rackmount outboard. Weisbach used the 4-piece Pearl kit supplied by the studio, but expanded on it with his own selection of cymbals, exotic metals, as well as timbale, darabuka, octoban, several choice snare drums, and a rusty old roto-timp.
We continue with Bluestone, a simple theme developed and explored, deep in a groove.
