Many thanks to Matt for his valuable help!

Recorded somewhere between January 1988 and January 1989.
Released in May 1989 on the album The Miracle.

General:
My Baby Does Me is one of the little-known tracks.
The song-material itself is rather b-side-style, but the incredibly large-scale Miracle production-standards made a clever piece of music out of it. It's not the melody or the lyrics which count with this track, but the arrangement and the atmosphere. Check it with  stereo-headphones and some concentration, and you won't be disappointed. 

Bass:
The sound has lots of bass-frequencies.
 
Keyboards:
There's one major keyboard-track, which is doing the chords. It has an E-Piano sound and is played by John on a Yamaha DX-7.
On some places (especially the outro) it is doubled with a bell-sound. This bell-sound is also playing some overdubs at 0:41,1:09 and so on.
At 1:38 and 1:54 there are further overdubs, but this time they're done with  a xylophone-track.At 1:23,1:58-2:10,2:17 and 2:51-end there are several overdubs with a sweep-pad (a synth which takes some time to fade in after you've touched the keys).

Guitars: (Brian)
One guitar(let's call it guitar 1) plays along with the bass from 0:13 till 1:30, at 1:51 and from 2:09 till the end. It is mixed entirely into the right
channel.
A second guitar (guitar 2) is doing the same (+some other little fills) one octave higher from 0:16 till 0:28,0:56 till 1:25 and 2:18 till the end. It is mixed entirely into the left channel.
Guitar 3 is playing small fills 'n' overdubs at 1:22, 1:55, 2:11,2:21 and from 2:31 till the end. Left channel.
Guitar 4 is the solo-guitar and plays all the rest.
 
SoundZ:
Everything's played on the Red Special.
Guitars 1 + 2 are completely dry and were possibly recorded directly into the desk. Guitar 3 has a sparkling clean-sound, compression and delay.
Guitar 4 has high-gain distortion, a stereo-chorus and a bit delay 'n' reverb.
 
Vocals: (Freddie)
In the bridge-part towards the end there is a little choir consisting of three voices (all recorded by Brian).
Another track has some overdubs, like Freddie whispering "chaka-chaka-chaka", and is hidden under the solo-interludes after the verses.
The rest is recorded on the lead vocal-track. Freddie's voice is recorded quite dry, with only a tiny bit of reverb used.
 
By The Way:
The song actually contains more instruments than it seems at first.
Although the song is credited to Queen (well,Roger and Brian definitely had some input, but they aren't the main-writers) the actual song is a collaboration between Freddie and John (Freddie confirmed this).
Freddie/John collaborations weren't an unusual thing in the 80's and the results mostly belonged to the funky side of Queen.
