In the studio these ideas were further refined. Some were quite fixed but others were more fluid. This section finds Cross and Muir working on what Crim referred to as the 'section section'. It's a fragile moment in the suite as a whole and it's somehow even more delicate in the studio here. As you can hear, had the first version not been nixed when Muir's autoharp inadvertently moved, we might have ended up with a different sounding section.
It took Cross and Muir several attempts to get the take that we all know,but that initially elusiveness in 1973 has enabled fans in 2014 to hear for the first time how this section slowly came together.
