Nothing conclusive, but it’s very telling to me that he doesn’t mention Stevie. He confirms the two songs were recorded at the same time, so it makes no sense that Stevie would have sang on one and not the other.
The thing is, Billy's book is absolutely littered with mistakes. As good a read as it is, its filled with grammatical errors and factual inaccuracies. I wouldn't, therefore rely 100% on what he says.

I'm sure he did only record the song with Mick, John and Christine, but maybe Stevie was recorded at some later stage for overdubs or perhaps they even had a set of her vocals hanging around from a previous (redundant) recording session.
