Session Details: 

Lord states that "Alternate Blues (Alternate IV)" is identical to the track "Chicken Wings". The track-lengths are nearly identical, but it is unclear whether Lord is implying that these are identical in composition (i.e., they are the same song, recorded twice) or if he means that there was a mislabelling situation, and that what was labelled as "Alternate Four" is actually just a copy of Chicken Wings. -JS

 

For some reason, even though it is listed as a medley--that is, a single track comprised of multiple compositions--Lord specifies which sections of the medley, or which compositions, have which personnel playing on them. However, once again, it is a single track, and so that specificity seems a bit of a paradox.
