Reply to "recurring dream different versions"

Thanks, @Paināporo! (PS, check your PMs!)

Despite all the information provided by people (such as yourself) about the different versions, this is still confusing as hell for someone trying to catalogue everything!

I'd be surprised if Recurring Dream was recorded during the Woodface sessions. If it was, it would have been the original Woodface sessions, prior to Tim joining. But the idea that they would use an old song's instrumental backing track to form the basis of a new studio album doesn't sit right. Not saying it didn't happen, but it would have been odd, especially if it included the lead guitar of someone no longer in the band (Craig Hooper).

Here is what I have in my notes. Is what I have accurate? I'm still yet to confirm which version was used for the Tequila Sunrise soundtrack and don't have a copy of that. I also know there are technically three versions, even if two are very similar.

Seems like this graph formatting is all over the place, but I hope it gets the point across.
