 Wednesday 29th January 1975 was when T.Rex manager Tony Howard unceremoniously sacked Mickey Finn, EW. An announcement was made in the UK music press about Finn 'leaving', circa 14th February.

Although full studio documentation is long since lost/destroyed, it is though Bobbye Hall Porter is responsible for the congas heard.

Friday 1st August in Scorpio Sound, Euston, London saw various versions of 'Dreamy Lady' recorded..

At least three more tape boxes from Scorpio Sound, London exist from Thursday 28th August 1975, relating to this release. On the three tapes are takes and mixdowns of 'Dreamy Lady' (as annotated with working title 'Silver Lady'), 'Dock Of The Bay', 'Do You Wanna Dance' and 'Christmas Bop'.

Friday 5th September saw further work at Trident Studios on 'Do You Wanna Dance', and 'Dock Of The Bay', with two takes of 'Ain't That A Shame' also being laid down.

 Yeah, but who's playing the bongos though Ade?
How long after the American TV special did Mickie leave?
I'm sure he appears in patches on Futuristic Dragon.
