I always thought it was Brian Jones who played the accordion on BSG. (I love the accordion sooo much ~ just sayin'.)
It turns out ALO brought in a session musician/arranger named Nick de Caro to play it, because of the 'sound' Andrew wanted.
Supposedly, a few years ago someone asked ALO on his FaceBook if it was actually Brian on the accordion, asking because of the "rather disciplined nature of the playing." And he answered that he brought in Nick de Caro.
I just went on Wiki and it said ALO brought in Nick de Caro (who's worked with such people as Sonny & Cher.)
Brian does play on this song, just not the accordion, according to this information.
