Gee Steve, do you think I could have just made a mistake? I don’t claim to have encyclopedic knowledge of when songs were written, but I thought Paper Doll was released in 1991 or 1992, and e-mail probably wasn’t a thing then anyway, I don’t know. But thank you for pointing it out

Now I know how Stevie felt when Lindsey attacked her about her use of tense on Thrown Down. You wouldn’t have said that to Bob Dylan, would you?!?

It was an outtake from BTM that Richard and Lindsey tweaked.

Wow. I thought Paper Doll was from the recording sessions for "Greatest Hits"

Does Lindsey do the guitar wailing towards the end of the song? I like Paper Doll. It's got like a Hawaii music on the beach spirit.

During the Sound Gig interview, Rick looks at Stevie and talks about writing Freedom at her house in Phoenix. I take it that she wrote those songs with those people at that time. Also all the song she and Lindsey did together when they were a couple. She may have written the lyrics, but I'm sure they were in the same room, working out the lyrics and melodies together.
I think the cowriting process really varied song to song with her. Sometimes she did just write lyrics to someone else’s already existing music. “If Anyone Falls” we know was written to an already existing instrumental track that Sandy Stewart had written called “The Last American” (see link below). Likewise, Stevie writes in the liner notes for Timespace that “Desert Angel” was written to a track on a cassette of songs that Mike Campbell sent her.

You’re right, UnwindedDreams- Paper Doll was originally recorded for their Greatest Hits album but dropped for No Questions Asked; before Mick put it on the Chain box set, he gave the completed song to Lindsey, who added some work on it. I don’t know the extent of his contribution, though. Of the other three new songs on the Chain, Make Me a Mask was a completely solo contribution by Lindsey (none of the rest of the band is on it) while Love Shines and Heart of Stone were recorded by Christine, John, Mick, and Billy and produced by Patrick Leonard. People say Stevie is on Heart of Stone but according to Billy’s book, she’s not on it. He was very clear those two songs were performed by those four members only.

It’s obvious Stevie is on it. She might have been added after the song was otherwise finished (as was the case on some of Lindsey’s SYW songs), but she’s clearly there, regardless of what Billy says.

Yep.

I only hear her on the chorus, particularly at the end of each line, most notably on the word "stone"
