Session Details: 

It's slightly confusing how Cool Blues is listed as having multiple takes, but a different alternate title each time. Without having an on hand copy to listen, it's unclear if it's a situation where a different melody is played over an earlier tune's chords, or what. still, there's an inherent contradiction to saying that a track is an alternate take to another--but with a different subtitle than the others. More research will have to be done. -JS
