|The Police mix Don't Stand So Close To Me '86 in London|
|Location:||London, England, UK - RAK Recording Studios|
- by the end of the day a rudimentary drum pattern has been worked out (mainly Stewart's work)
- then it's Andy Summers' guitar (probably on the 2nd day), Stewart's injury gets worse - he has to go to the hospital!
- next day - afternoon: Stewart's back - after Sting leaves, Stewart changes the drums again
- Stewart watches The Bride on VHS that night
- next day: Stewart working on drum tracks again - when it's ready, Sting is gone
- next two days: Stewart tinkering with drum tracks
- next day: still no sign of Sting at the studio - a messenger delivers a letter to Stewart, Stewart writes back while Sting is at his Hampstead home
- next morning: Stewart talks with Miles about calling Sting
- next day: Miles phones Stewart again at the studio - a deadline is worked out: mixing the DON'T 86 version next Friday at 10 pm.
- Friday, 9 pm: Miles and Sting appear at studio - Sting gives Stewart a yellow flower, then he shows him the 12-inch-switchblade which was in the other hand and flicks it under Stewart's chin. They both break into convulsive laughter.
The article accounts for 11 days of studio work with a few days to pass until the final mixing "next Friday" happens. With free weekends this suggests that the complete recordings and mixing were done within three weeks ending today.
