Ian Stewart, Nicky Hopkins and Billy Preston (during the last week) were the only additional musicians present in Jamaica. The so-called 'Goat's Head Patties' sessions lasted four weeks (November-December, 1972) and were consolidated by producer Jimmy Miller and sound engineers Andy Johns and Carlton Lee to produce the "Goat's Head Soup" album. Ian Stewart played piano on 'Short And Curlies', a track that would stay in the can until 1974's "It's Only Rock'n'Roll" album.
Stu was a natural for the boogie woogie bar-room piano display, but the song itself lacks conviction, and can be considered a filler track on "It's Only Rock'n'Roll". The Stones finished the 1972 basic track during overdubbing and mixing sessions in London, England (April-May, 1974.).
