“The Story of Rock & Roll (second version - tracking session take 5A)”

Micky: I lost one of my sticks.
?: Get a new one.
Micky: Halfway through. We gotta do the whole, we gotta do it again from like—I think we got a first verse. I think we got a whole first half.
?: No, we can do a whole—we can do a whole better take.
Micky: I don’t think so.
?: Keep those low crackling [???].


Micky: [???]
?: Right.
Micky: [???] But otherwise, I think we got it. In fact, the break might have worked. I don’t know if I made a mistake.
?: Let’s do one more to see if we can get covered. Any bad spots, Hank?
?: No, except what Micky said, just that one break.
?: Oh. Here we go.
