‘Home Tonight’ is an extremely likeable, poppy number which is elevated by Greg Kurstin’s brilliant production and what I’m assuming is the Muscle Shoals Horns, who were used in the Egypt Station sessions.
‘In A Hurry’ is one of Paul’s character study songs, this time about someone who “never took the time to look around.” It has a lively break around the 1.40 mark which recalls the ambitious arrangement on ‘Despite Repeated Warnings’ and shares that song’s creative ‘anything goes’ attitude.
One can only marvel that these unreleased tracks were lying unused and weren’t considered for either bonus tracks on the original deluxe of Egypt Station or for the Traveller’s or Explorer’s condition. What do you think of the songs? Leave a comment.
