Well now, e-mail is a strange thing and these 4 songs unexpectedly arrived
in mine today.
My opinion of the tracks echoes what is written below, save to say that the
overall sound is much like the Hook End Manor and Los Colinas songs on
Session for Robert J.
My wife's passing opinion: Whoo hoo, sing the blues.
Always willing to spread the blues ;-)

Midnight Hour Blues is great. It's my third favorite song on the album,
after Hard Times Blues and Can"t Hold Out Much Longer. Clearly, I like the
blues. I think it is an old Leroy Carr song. Great stuff.
When Take A Little Walk With Me started playing I swore I was listening to
Sweet Home Chicago. Well, it seems to be Robert Lockwood Jr's rewriting of
Sweet Home Chicago. I still think EC could have changed the arrangement A
LITTLE, to make it sound a little bit less like his version of Sweet Home
I Was Fooled is a pretty silly song. I don't know who originally recorded
it. If My Very Good Friend The Milkman was a single I would put I Was Fooled
on the B side.
You'd Better Watch Yourself is, indeed, the same song as Watch Yourself on
24 Nights. That being said, it is a very nice version of the song. I thought
it was going to be all harmonica solo, but towards the end someone, maybe
EC, plays a few guitar notes. But it's good.
