According to Mac - " With Woody, Martin Quintenton, and Mickey Waller, and me on occasional tracks here and there, the band Rod assembled for the record would change very little over the next five albums, though Pete Sears handled more of the keyboards on the later recordings. Woody almost always played bass on the basic tracks and then overdubbed lead or slide guitars . . . (" All the Rage" pg. 155)
