I Need Your Love
I Got the Blues
World's in a Tangle
Talk With You
Like it This Way

MF is listed playing with OS on;
Someday Soon Baby
Hungry Country Girl

I'm aware Mick sat out The Biggest Thing Since Colossus. I don't know the circumstances behind that. Did Spann take exception to Mick's playing?
sadly i can't really read the according writing on the picture of the reel boxes, but i'd say mr. lewry is probably wrong on this, as a) he seems to be the only one with this opinion, b) mick's style of drumming can be detected rather easily on the recording (being quite different to s.p. leary's) and c) in doubt i'd rather trust the info of producer mike vernon (he was definitely there).

as for the "colossus" sessions - again according to mike vernon - otis was keen on playing with the mac again, but insisted on his long-standing / trusted sideman leary to occupy the drum stool.
