Recorded at Musicland Studios,Munich in the time between February and May 1980.
At first the piano, bass and drum-tracks were recorded (piano played by Freddie). Brian recorded the Rhythm guitar two times (double tracked) to get a fatter sound. Mack (producer) did some backwards cymbal effects and synthesiser portamento effects on two tracks (using the Oberheim OBX). Then Brian played the solo-guitar,using a chorus pedal. I wanna add that some parts of Roger's drum-work on this song are very tricky and a highlight on the album.
The backing-vocals are done on two tracks by Roger,Brian and Freddie (up to five different voices, some voices are double tracked)
And finally Freddie did the lead-vocals. There are demo-tapes of this song where Andy Gibb (brother of the BeeGees) sings the lead-vocals,too.
Here's a little look at the equipment: Brian used his Red Special, Vox amp, a treble booster and a chorus pedal. John didn't use a Fender or a Music Man bass on this song, as I think it's a bass with a very mellow sound, but it's not fretless. I don't know the brand.
The key is Am (or C?), the tempo is 80
